Simply stated, I am a mark maker and nothing more. This making of marks, lines, scratches and strokes is central to my work and it leads, only incidentally, to an area that is about light, tone and texture. The pictures become simultaneously about the "micro" as each mark has a value that is weighed as its made…as well as the big picture that crystallizes in the process. In the end the pictures are meant to stand alone, showing an image or object as it might be viewed through a screen door. You only see some of the image, the rest being filled in by a function of grey matter.
