I am producing three-dimensional collages that are rigorously considered aesthetic expressions that expand the language and boundaries of painting. In a subtle critique of consumption and commoditization, the material for the work is reclaimed waste acquired in my daily routine of preparatory work and studio practice. Materials are used literally, some exactly as found, some manipulated and refined as pure surface. Many individual objects are collected and produced before being methodically paired off or combined into larger groups. These groups are not permanent arrangements; objects are intended to be used in any number of configurations. The use of common and familiar material allows the work to transcend its formal underpinning.
