I explore the formal qualities of abstraction and sculpt everyday materials, scanning fragments to layer and form something new. My work is a personal exploration of man-made, household materials that are used daily yet go unnoticed. We recognize them for their utilitarian purpose; we are unsettled if inventory wanes. They tend to blend within their environment. My impersonal manipulation of the materials creates a visual rhythm of alternative shapes and forms, freeing them from their utilitarian value.

Familiar and mundane things such as paper become new and ambiguous. I experiment with textures, form and line removing visual references and triggering a transition from function to form. They are now recognized as something unrecognizable, a sort of collision between the representational and the abstract.
