Artist Statement

My art plays with the idea of integrating physical and ethereal substance.  Loopholes in science, religion, and reality allow me to make magical art, imagining new potentials for our experienced actuality.  Through corporeal and visual means I intend to illuminate invisible forces that cosmically forge certain tangible substances into our contemporary society; also, highlighting how these seemingly elemental substances have endured a turbulent, biased, and manufactured history.
