<p>My work develops between the public sphere of the street and the intimacy of my studio. It is initiated by chance encounters with ready-made objects and leftovers I find on the sidewalks of New York. I harmoniously merge these seemingly unrelated materials into a language of mark–making and gesture. My creations can mutate, expand and contract extemporaneously and endlessly.</p><p>Examining this limitless quality constitutes a playful, improvised and relevant process. Boundaries between street and studio are blurred, while materials are transformed and yet resist a complete conversion into a specific medium. Ultimately I use what is most readily available to observe how modern consumerist behavior visually alters our cityscape.</p>
