CLOUD RELIEFS CERAMIC, SPRAY PAINT 2019 Created in response to decorative ornaments commonly found on bridges in Zhujiajiao, these ceramic reliefs record traces of the urban architecture and ubiquitous symbols present in the vicinity of the Untitled Space residency in an outer suburb of Shanghai, China. This represents part of an ongoing collaborative practice with […]Read more "Cloud reliefs"
STRANGE AND UNADORNED : WAVE INTERFERENCE STUDIES (NO. 1 – 19) GRAPHITE ON CANSON BARBIZON PAPER 15.3 X 10.6 INCHES / 39 x 27 CENTIMETERS 2019 – 2020 These drawings source imagery from American photographer Berenice Abbott’s series Documenting Science, created during the 1940s and 50s, in which photographic exposures of light waves captured with […]Read more "Interference patterns"
Overhead, afterimage is an exhibition of new and past work exploring the distinction between the functional and the decorative, deconstructing commonplace objects associated with architecture, navigation, and the relationship between built and natural environments. The first three works are graphite drawings on paper depicting abstract, contrasting patterns known as wave interference patterns. The physical process […]Read more "Overhead, afterimage"
The Sun Is Your Enemy is a proposal of light as sculptural matter and meditation on the technologies and social histories that have altered, contorted, captured, and redirected our understanding of vision and space.Read more "The sun is your enemy"
The digital prints on aluminum from this series use digital cloning to remix historical tools for vision, rendering them as kaleidoscopic meditations on the histories of vision, photography, and surveillance.Read more "Shibboleths for the sun"
This series of resin-coated fabric prints draws on physics textbook diagrams used to demonstrate the wave motion of light, collaging together broken images of light and combining discrete, photographed moments into a continuum much like spliced reels of film.Read more "Undulations"
Adapted photographs from the Expatriate Archive Centre show images of oil rigs and humid landscapes, interrupted by degradation and decay marks on the images’ surfaces.Read more "Everything went shimmery"
MONSTRATSIYA ARCHIVE FROSTING ON GLASS 2017 – 2018 Reappropriating absurdist Russian protest signs known as monstratsiya (-monstrations), the works call to loophole behaviors used to circumnavigate legal complications where illegibility and ‘invisibility’ are rendered as effective as direct action. Here, the act of archiving monstratsiya protest signs serves to document these ephemeral gestures and give them permanent […]Read more "Monstratsiya archive"
TO BE A PALE COPY DYE SUBLIMATION PRINTS ON POLYESTER 2016 These photographic prints of Berenice Abbott’s images—taken for physics textbook studies of wave interference patterns of light through water—are repurposed as flags on fabric, emphasizing of their iconic compositions and central geometric forms. Abbott was part of various Parisian and New York City social […]Read more "To be a pale copy"
A stack of black-and-white prints, showing paintings of Saint Francis, Saint Clare, and other recipients of the stigmata, sit on a pedestal at one end of the room. The punched holes rest on another pedestal across the room.Read more "Half a ream of stigmata"
