“I use ordinary materials that have a certain humanity about them in order, hopefully, to explore my tenuous, uncertain, mysterious, and sometimes absurd relationship to my surroundings, seen and unseen. I am interested in both a humble physicality and a transcendence of the quotidian. I have a mystic vision of the universe that is just beyond reason, and it is in this zone that I believe my work best functions. I want to express the spiritual with the hands of a sheetrock installer.”
