ARTIST'S STATEMENT

 

Whether you look through a microscope, a telescope, or an airplane window, our world is textured, pocked, lined, brushed, burnished and diverse in its splendor. It isn’t always pretty, this texture, but it's always arresting, always can't-take-your-eyes-off-of-it-memorable. 

I'm obsessed with thick forests, deep oceans, vast deserts, and outer space - the mystery and beauty of what seems like endlessness. We can only see so far. We can only see what we can see. For me there is something deeply spiritual about that. Something innately human about being slightly blind, all the time.

I hope my work expresses that. 

 

Once you can accept the universe
as being something expanding
into an infinite nothing which is something, 
wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.

                                 - Albert Einstein
