STATEMENT

 

I make Bits.

A Bit is a unique object that is outfitted with a magnet on the back. It can exist as its own independent work of art, for it’s really quite lovely all by itself, but 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. Magnets offer the perfect mounting system for infinite potential configurations when placed on steel. 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 love exploring the diversity of medium as well as content using different materials, and 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.
