The artist’s sculptural paintings invite the viewer to navigate towards an unattainable space. Abstracted, incongruous staircases orient the viewer upwards, but defy the possibilities of a physical climb. Each plane is treated as a painting within the sculpture. Its surface is adhered with recycled paint and other found materials generated from the creative process.
In architecture, stairs represent a link – both real and imagined – between where we are and where we want to go. When they’re functional, they’re inspiring: a means of physical and symbolic elevation and relocation. When they’re broken, they’re tantalizing: disjointed, dysfunctional structures that ultimately fail to serve their intended purpose.
