Artist Statement

My drawings are my way on excavating  information from fairy tales, dreams, imagined and real war ecologies, domestic interiors and urban artifacts.  They are an attempt to think my way into the questions erupting out of the fissure between the telling about the world, and the conditions of drawing from life, the simultaneity of catastrophes of all sort drawn in, in whole or part, and the ensuing equivocality.
