At the core of my work is a simultaneous reverence for and anxiety about the incredible instability of the world. I am particularly interested in the awesome volatility of representation and/or meaning -- in the way that both signifier and signified shift, constantly and contextually. My current work investigates walls, windows, and painting as sites of this instability.
