In this series, I attempt to interrupt the objects’ original meanings. I physically alter broken and abandoned materials to create new forms that are alienated from their original purpose. Instead of concentrating on their symbolic or functional histories, I focus on how my perception of the objects physically changes over a period of time. By emphasizing evolving visual and perceptual qualities, I attempt to mask and then recode the objects’ meanings. Their new function is to be observed.
The work consists of three inter-related parts: objects, drawings, and paintings. Each part is a way of representing my visual understanding of these un-namable forms.
The panel paintings are icons to the overlooked objects that surround us daily, with their shadows and reflections gaining a physical presence.
