Artist Statement
Two people pass through the same place on the same day and experience it differently. I wonder about the patterns that other people see. Implied in the existence of someone or somewhere else is the belief in a border. We think in terms of boundaries: I am this and not that. This is inside me, that is outside. I am here and not there. But these categories get jumbled and disrupted all the time. Sometimes at the moment of waking I don’t know where I am. What are the structures- natural, architectural and behavioral- that place us? How much distance must we have before we can see them?
Windows and roads recur in my work because they are passages and potential sites of transformation. I'm also interested in the patterns of the natural world: the way water ripples, how plants grow, what time the sun comes up. I have the feeling that these patterns make sense out of the world, but that they are too large and complicated for me to see. My work is about looking for them.
