Artist Statement

Artist Statement

My recent body of small scale, drawing based work serves as a loose container for personal allegories which are looping, unfolding, manifold and in a sense never finished. They are fueled by external sources but mostly feed from eachother, daisy chain style, species meeting species. At the core there is a collision of natural worlds, animal, human, unknown and cultivated. All of the works share a tendency to chart somewhat familiar ground and to extend their explorations into inexplicable terrain; the thing lost in translation. In the drawing there is something akin to the dreamy persistence of the adolescent hand: all-absorption in the paper realm of micro-glyphic doodle. Inscribed and over-inscribed, I see these works as stubborn hold-outs, encoding time, compulsive penmanship, strange penance, small worlds.
