Densely packed paintings and sculptures make up this body of work. They are playfully made, assertively stacked, urgently bound, and thoughtfully slapped together amalgamations. Foam packaging, bricks, tiles, plastic bags, bungee cords, straps, furniture pieces, and stones make up the burden they carry. Chunky paintings hold onto thick layers of paint, acrylic medium, and found objects. They can be loose portraits of sculptures or objects, or non-objective abstractions whose compositions and vivid colors are decided by things I collect. Abstract sculptures with figurative elements are bundled into unstable-looking forms, barely containing themselves and spilling their guts onto the floor. This body of work is given the task of taking on the weight of a constant practice of collecting and making, and because I joyfully engage in this burdensome practice, it lightly and effortlessly carries that weight.
