CV

My work varies from layered paintings to minimalist drawings and installations. It often arises from repeating an action and stems from curiosity. What happens when I repeat a simple action. Not three times, but tens or hundreds of times.

I let 1001 ping-pong balls levitate in the air. I glue 44,000 rubber bands together. I apply many layers of varnish, sometimes 347, sometimes 50. I suspend thousands of paper strips to create a temple of silence. Each act, however small, is part of the final work. Like every second is an essential part of a day, a year, and a century. Like every breath is part of life.

Time is intertwined with my work, which often takes months and sometimes years to make.
