Artist Statement
These drawings depict a window into an alternative plane. One where human habitation is seen only through the artifacts and shells of architecture and infrastructure left behind. Simple shelters or modernist design, all are equally abandoned to the laws of physics run amok. Though they are different in their aesthetic design, this great leveling strips bare the necessities of humanity. Like Thoreau’s Walden, they speak of the basics, whose moment of fleeting habitation has passed. Shell-like, left behind, they are ravaged by undisciplined phenomena.

The sculpture exists as an elegant escape from the turbulent drawn world. They have stepped out of the 2d space, resulting in deceptively simple molecular constructions of carbon, our building block of life and the graphite used to draw.
