Artist Statement

This series of drawings and paintings investigates representations of power and flux as visualized in current and historic informational graphics. I manipulate the language of charts, maps and diagrams by hybridizing and conflating images from these formats. In essence, I am interested in how we see and remember visual information, and how our viewing experience ultimately dissolves into a series of afterimages.


Everyday in both print and electronic media, we view information about such diverse topics as the imbalance of world trade, the spread of a virus within a community, or the changing boundaries of a disputed area of land. The graphical language of charts, maps and diagrams has the ability to communicate information about complex topics in compact form. My series entitled Imaging Power and Flux explores the afterimages that remain with us, as images of power and flux commingle, condense and form hybrids in our memory.
