Artist Statement

My practice is primarily three-dimensional with two major focuses: large, physically immersive installations, and smaller sculptural works-each containing hybrid architectures as their subject matter.

This series of works submitted comprise an ongoing rumination on cognitive dissonance and frustrated desires conveyed through an architectural lexicon.

These scale-model replicas of brick building fragments and brick masonry facades catalogue a range of ‘vignettes’ that have been culled from my experience living in a rust-belt city (Buffalo, NY) for more than a decade. These scenarios often hearken back to a once more prosperous or energized age. In addition to the aesthetic appeal that these fossilized traces contain-there is a rich metaphorical vein that transcends the visible and evokes a sense of absurdity, pathos, and psychological unease. In this grouping of works- disconnected ladders, blocked windows, shadows of former structures, detached floor plans, collapsed walls, eroded roof-lines, and bloated surfaces shrug off their originally designed roles and stand as petrified strata which seem to gently mock the beholder

Please join the Holy Family Art Gallery at the artist reception.

Holy Family University Gallery is on the Lower Level of the Sister Francesca Onley Education and Technology Center.
