Producing an artist statement nearly always fills me a sense of futility. During the course of working on a large commission, or crafting a work that will hang on someone’s wall, I feel nearly everything it is possible for me to feel, from disgust to triumph, indifference to passionate devotion to the process, and it is very difficult to encapsulate that world into a few paragraphs.
I can write about my saws, and the attention they demand of me. I can talk about my materials. My context remains my neighborhood, the rhythm of my day, the way my hands feel.
