Through a partnership with the Charlotte Street Foundation, the Focus artists will also present their work at the La Esquina gallery in Kansas City in March 2013. The Focus OK-KC component includes four Oklahoma artists and five Kansas City, MO artists developing new work for the exhibitions in both Tulsa and Kansas City.

My work is primarily installation based, placing various ideas in the same space and asking the viewer to draw connections. I organize information, meticulously categorizing everyday situations, interactions among other people, and my relationship to the world around me. After spending a major part of this past year focusing on the idea of curating and the organization of exhibitions, I realized how closely related those ideas are to the work that I produce. I highlight and emphasize patterns of time, whether those patterns exist in my daily activities or are embedded in ideas I find interesting.
