"I wanted to do a body of work that focused on the garbage and pieces of paper and scraps of canvas I had lying around on my studio floor, and where those scraps could ultimately lead me. What they led to was a body of work that at first glance seems disjointed- as if each element has nothing to do with the next. But on further scrutiny, you realize that it’s all interconnected."
