Research Statement

From the outset of my relationship to art, I have always envisioned the field as a “wild west” of creative inquiry—where to go when your ideas defy containment. For me, the childhood attachment I have to Da Vinci’s free-floating innovative practice is persistent in its romanticism. These practices provide a model where curiosity and inquiry operate without parameter. The model that I have adopted is one in which inquiry is the centerpiece of the practice, and the work may take the form of an invention, art, or perhaps something yet to be identified.
