"I find things with interesting textures and think, I want to make something out of that. The objects I find are often otherwise useless: containers, packing materials, packaging, paint that dried on my palette. They are the residue of our disposable, one-time-use material culture. By making art with these objects, I imbue impermanent things with a new sense of permanence and purpose. From the rhythmic interplay of light and shadow on corrugated cardboard, the dreamlike diaphanous nature of plastic shopping bags, the brilliant hues of the bottles that make our packaged beverages seem all the more appealing, every assemblage in the series is infused with its own peculiar beauty. And I call this style of working with the by-products of the products we buy Post-Consumerism."
