STATEMENT

 

I make Bits.

A Bit is a unique object of art with a magnet attached that can fit in the palm of your hand. Magnets offer the perfect mounting system for infinite potential configurations when placed on steel. Bits are intended to be grouped together so as to create something larger, something with a life force. It’s a flexible system for manipulating artistic information in a very concrete and physical way. They are meant to be perpetually deconstructed and reconstructed. It’s the whole point. Life is not static, so if art is about life then art should move.  I am highly mindful of the surface of each Bit because my work is meant to be touched. You could say I have a fetish for finish. The possibilities are endless.

Please know I also have a secure locking panel system that is available for installing larger work in public spaces.
