Artist Statement:

Knowledge of our world is accumulated through experience, which is mediated through belief and expectation. We learn to trust our perceptions as truth and allow the process of translating exterior phenomenon, which constantly informs and reassures our perceived reality, to fade from consciousness. Occasionally, when this truth is challenged, our trust falters. We become cognizant of our personal archives of knowledge and the malleability and subjectivity of each of our realities. 

I examine the idea of constructed reality through material, allusion, and representation. Each piece provides an opportunity for interpretation, which can either support or challenge personal archives of experiential knowledge.  The process of perception slows down as the current apprehension is measured against previous experience, expectations, and beliefs. Thus presenting a moment to consider the delicacy and individuality of our constructed realities and assumed truths.
