Many of the things we cherish have purely nostalgic value, and little to no intrinsic value. My work explores value and symbolism, specifically the assignment of worth and meaning, what is valuable and meaningful for what reasons. Focusing on value and symbolism allows me to create pieces instilled with my own memories, experiences and inside jokes. Although the questions posed by my pieces may not be readily understood, they can still be appreciated; their meanings can be reassigned by those appraising them. The flexibility of meanings and symbols allow pieces to attain worth beyond their face value.
