Artist Statement
Life in the city is subject to constant urban renewal and reconstruction. This creation of a new space first requires the destruction of the previous one. The place where someone was born gives way to a new building where someone else starts their first job. The place where someone got mugged becomes the place where children go to school. All these new places that seem so artificially placed grow into the fabric of the city in time. Causing and resulting from these changes in surroundings, the character of a neighborhood and its people changes. Spaces that were filled become empty. Spaces that were empty become filled.

In my work these spaces intermingle and collide. Churches, houses, stores, and hospitals fight for space in the limited space of the rectangle. At some points they fuse and create new structures. At other times they over lap and negate each other destroying the integrity of one or both structures.
