Provisional Zones is an installation made up of found or discarded objects to which I apply paint or painterly conventions. I do this to make something new from that which was forgotten or unremarkable. I place unusual combinations of objects together to create a sense of strangeness in the gallery space - a strangeness that takes the viewer out of the ordinary everyday experience of the world and into a heightened space - one that points to a threshold between what is known and what is unknown. This in-between space is important to my work because it allows for the possibility of instability and “not knowing” by myself and the viewer. I choose this field of instability when I work because it provides the most fertile ground to make an affective connection between myself and the objects of the world.
