My work begins with the perspective that movement is primary and prior to space and time. Movement of the corporeal body (both personal and abstracted) does not happen in space and time but instead produces it. This becomes a driving force in my process-oriented and improvisational work, which takes the form of large scale site specific installations, acrylic paintings, drawings, aluminium sculptures, and often, surprising and unexpected interventions in the way we perceive and experience matter itself.
