Artist Statement

For me, drawing is a strategy with which to mediate between (and moderate) various disparate forces at work in my life and art; simultaneously, it is a simulator, a testing ground for an Unknown proposition. Several series, CS, Q, and FT feed in and feed off one another and are supplemented by a series of peripheral documents-notebooks and texts- which are meant to refine, prove and/or discredit the system(s) at work.
