Time, its relevance and our perception of it, is the subject of my work. I often incorporate shards of copied historic artifacts in my work. Looking back at those ancient artworks can inform our understanding of our current world as we are looking forward into the future, while giving us the sense of security that comes from objects that persist over time. Using 21st century technologies and materials as well as placing those ancient originals in a contemporary composition has the pieces hover in the twilight district, between past and future.
