Bench Mourn Swamp
Rabbit/Snake Stick Mr. Joseph/ The Fox
 

My work transports commonplace objects into new and fantastical environments. The Reliquary series uses sticks and places them into sumptuous containers. In its new habitat, each stick insinuates a different animal such as a fox, or mournful dragon.

Overcoming the traditionally passive role of the public is a concern in my work. The Reliquary series includes works that have items leashed to the container. An onlooker becomes a participant by finding the "right" placement for the leashed item.

Nearly all my works are small in size to seduce the viewer into an intimate relationship with the piece. The secret nature of boxes promises more revelations to an engaged viewer.
