My work operates as a light-hearted social critique to encourage viewers to act on self-awareness. To achieve this, I utilize assemblage. Assemblage is the primary methodology used in my sculptures because of the languages that it affords. Found objects have their original associations and purposes, and by combining found or built objects the associations and contexts interact with other found or constructed objects to form metaphors of life circumstances which can convey meaning that neither of the objects held initially. Nobody is exempt from making missteps their actions and behaviors and to that end instead of wagging my finger I invite the viewer to look in the mirror with me, have a laugh, learn a lesson and strive to be better.
