Artist Statement

Isaac Newton’s third law of motion states: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. As one force advances, the other recedes, withdraws, and resists. Though rarely discernable amidst a fundamentally progressive society, my work strives to explore the delicate moment between affect and effect. While both the leaning brick structure and the geometric earthenware form derive their essence and importance in a variety of different manners, I am interested in the unique relationship created by placing them in a mutual environment. As the forms deny any proof of contact, they certainly present questions concerning impact, permanence, and declination.
