Artist in Residence Program 2012
I make artworks informed by the objects, sites, and cultural structures they employ. I alter and remake, not simply to create new things, but to reveal the reciprocal flows through which we shape the world and the world shapes us. I create temporary, situational structures that erode and re-form endlessly because nothing is either permanent or discreet. Each artwork adds to every other creating a shared space of understanding.
While at Headlands
While at Headlands, I am allowing the Art Center to guide my practice. The physical space where I am working has a unique personality that I am activating and stretching in various ways by rearranging and reshaping materials that resonate with its architecture, history, and habitus. I am also letting the Headlands amorphously seep into my actions and ways of thinking. I am trying to stay open and allow the stillness here, the golden light, ghostly fog, and tiptoeing wildlife to impact not only the things I make here, but also my trajectory moving forward.
