Through work I continually search for a voice that embodies hidden qualities. Process is the structure. Every time I ask a question something happens. Mine is not to dissect and explain but to experience and reflect. What is the nature of mind? What is consciousness? Abstraction allows for the compositions to reflect unknown circumstance including memory of the past, experiencing the present and not knowing the future. Through the collision of gestural lines, form, color / black & white, and layered imagery tensions between opposing paradigms of structure and change speak to the Orwellian landscape of identity and power.
