Artist Statement

My work primarily is an act of exploration and discovery. Working with a vocabulary of accumulated images drawn largely from contemporary mass-media, and influenced by banal objects, myth, philosophy, literature and political and social concerns. I hone down these images to essential visual elements. I make the best use of process and media to inform and express my ideas. Open-ended outcomes of this process have no obvious interpretations, all the while loading the viewer ultimately to the word’s rich encoded patterns of identity and place. These arrangements attempt to create a resonance between color and objects and the space they occupy, creating a visual poetry.
