The work is a critique of epistemology through the process of deconstructing objects and de-circulating institutional relics, reconfiguring these commodities the way I think they should be perceived as an initiative to arts transformative function. Through investigative research, drawing, riffs on traditional sculpture and performance based installations, my interests and concerns pursue ideas of re-appropriation and mis-representation of images, text or forms that already exist, with personal/historical narratives embodying Socratic methods of questioning and humor as a post-colonial pedagogical dialogue on manipulating perspective of the dominant ideology, confronting cultural bias, perceptions of otherness and racial fabrications. Everything we see has the potential to become inexplicably something else, wherein concepts dictate materials and process.
