Artist Statement

In my work I explore ideas of psychological unease created by the design of urban spaces. I'm specifically interested in the contradictory perception related to agoraphobia where a person undergos sensations of being both fixed and unfixed to their surroundings. These contradictions are recreated as analogies that explore the tension between the conceptual and empirical experience of artworks.
