I am a Vancouver artist, working mostly with sculpture and movement, and sometimes with drawing and print. I studied at Langara College and completed my BFA in visual art at Emily Carr University in 2016. I also have a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Victoria.
I bring various materials and found objects together, using vibrant colours, energetic patterns, and automated movements. Movement stands in as a metaphor for life, and the passage of time. I collect and repurpose objects with interesting social histories and local contexts. My work exists in a non-human centric world of living objects and vital materiality. It is informed by inquiries into the metaphysics of objects, the science of systems, and the math of patterns.
Collaborative and curatorial projects include an exhibition of upcycled laptops in partnership with Free Geek Vancouver and a Vending Machine Experiment, creating tiny sculptures and art books that were made and distributed out of vending machines in Vancouver’s Chinatown and Downtown Eastside. Outdoor projects include a public art commission Gestures of Birds (2018) in New Westminster, BC, and the inflatable Banana Installation (2015) outside the Vancouver Art Gallery during the ISEA symposium.
Current projects (as of Spring 2019) include turning Al Neil’s old piano around until sound falls out of it, and a system of orbiting objects for an upcoming solo exhibition next year at PAVED Arts, in Saskatoon.
