Artist Statement

How can one preserve something that is not there anymore, or never was? How is it possible to retain the memory of something that has vanished or was made to vanish? What if this feeling still exists somewhere out there, but is constantly overlooked? My work is an investigation of the area between the tangible and ethereal. I am interested in how the incomprehensible is understood in terms of rendering the invisible visible. How we perceive or fail to perceive things in their natural context opens a space to experience the beauty in everything. This is where the act of seeing begins—this is my attempt at remembering the once familiar.
