Artist Statement

Recently I have been thinking about the picture plane as a terminal: a point of arrival as well as a simultaneous point of departure.  A terminal is a place where things join together or where things come apart.  To join is to disappear into the whole; to depart is to break away from the whole.  Arrival and departure are both points of uncertainty (change), points of disappearing.

In my drawings, elements come together, elements break apart.
