I am a visual artist based in San Francisco who studies transcendence through near-impossible actions, absurdity, and humor. I make performances in sites that are significant to me, at times for an audience of none. My work calls upon a series of open questions – Can one voice in the fog move a ship? How long can dust hold my father’s face? My exploration into the absurd is inspired by scientific studies of outré brain phenomena, personal mythology, and the works of Kafka, Gogol, and Anna Swir. Through drawing, sculpture, and video, the artifacts of my art practice become the errata of a body passing through time and dissipating.
