Collage is very similar to poetry. Images are used like words of a poem that transcend their original usage and form creative, imaginative, but not universal mediums of interpretation. Poets sculpt words and structure them into a poem. I choose images and arrange them into artwork. Where and how images get placed is the way to create the relationship that entails unique expressions.

Space can be used as a setting and also as an object by utilizing the interaction of images within the composition on both two and three-dimensions of my sculptures. Space consists of two-dimensional surface, three-dimensional structure, and negative spaces. In my artwork, there is perspective on surfaces, there are flat images on voluptuous structures, and silhouettes exist between the surfaces and structures. Spatial recognitions are made when they multiply and coexist within relationships of each other. By repeatedly layering flat and structural components I bring images and enumerate them into existence. I assemble space and parade them into a poem in the name of art.
