An Accounting of My Approach and Practice To-Date
In this paper I discuss my art making principles and their physical representation in some examples of my most recent work.
Having started my artistic practice during a particularly transformative period of my life, this paper reflects on my artistic evolution, it’s influences, and the principles I’ve acquired along the way. In it, I explain and analyze the function of failure and mmy relation to manipulation. I show, through image and descriptions, the ways in which a spectrum of pieces converge to substantiate my claims of intent to outcome. And I illuminate synergies between my practice and historical artists such as Sol Lewitt, Alexander Calder, and Beatrice Warde among others. This document is by no means total in its coverage of my latest work, but it serves as a concise accounting for the state of my practice and understanding of its reasoning to-date.
