Artist statement

From a lifetime in Nebraska to a decade in South America, the Middle East, and North Africa, my conceptual, multidisciplinary work is rooted in ideas of home and the experience of displacement. I mine personal histories to construct universal narratives. Imbued with a sense of longing, the work is poetic and precise, playful and poignant. I attach nostalgia to the mundane—everyday objects acting as points of entry into the work. I collect and arrange—actions of accrual and order—attempts at orienting myself in my surroundings. I negotiate shifting memories and digital constructs, collapsing distances of time and space, grasping at permanence, a gesture in futility.
