Artist Statement

No simple explanation for what I do as an artist exists. In fact, any explanation would involve codifying a state of mind, a way of life, a means to see, a principle of understanding, a consciousness of totality.

 

My work tells the tale that is as much about the viewer as it is about myself. My work invites the viewer to come in and be exposed to its energy and to discover all aspects of what is seen, to be placed in another dimension, which is neither flat nor three-dimensional, to be without history, to disappear in body, to focus the mind, to rest the soul, to transcend the “it-ness” of the work’s materiality and bond with the eternal, which, I, as the artist, can only indicate.

 

Moments are fleeting. We know we have been through them because we somehow make memories of them. Yet, it is for this reason that I imagine my memories so that you can look at those imaginations in proximity to an immutable, timeless, indescribable holiness that takes me through this life.
