Artist Statement

Fading light

melting into the foreground,

a distant glow remains.

An army of precision,

ordering the dense void.

Seeking symmetry in the asymmetric.

Dueling tides flowing in invisible currents,

journeys of both the known and unknown.

A crossing into both silent and screaming terrain. 

 

 

The inspirations driving my work are rooted in an aesthetic of high contrast and dualities existing in a shared space. Through the fusion of a fluid organic space along with graphic geometric imagery, I intend to evoke a visual space that meditates on conflicts between innate/instinctual drives with rational/logical thinking.  As our material world of logic and analysis seeks order and balance from our inner world of the transcendent and the ethereal.
