On Displacement:
"‘Displacement’ displays three items that were floating around my studio throughout 2013.  All of the items spawn from personal memories on a fragmented steel structure.  The cast bronze peppers are reminiscent of the drying pepperoncini in my apartment windows, the photograph is one that I took of a garment left behind from a fire near my old apartment and the piece of fabric is one that is relational to the garment in the photograph.  Much like a pin board of notes or ideas, the grouping of the three items creates an abbreviated visual poem."

 On Apt #15:

 "The sensation of mystery inspired ‘Apt. #15’.  For a six month period I walked by the front window of the apartment below mine in Athens, Georgia never seeing the person who lived inside.  A towel protruding through their window blinds was my only indication that somebody lived there."
