Artist Statement
The utilization of digital technology is central to my artistic practice. Nearly everything that I produce either begins with a pen on paper or is a reflection of that process when I draw directly on a computer. I ponder the digital mark and wonder how, even when we live in a time of radical shifts in the ontological and epistemological framework through which we understand the world, can the physical, empirical manifestation of a simple mark become something other as well? A digital mark is not physical, nor does it necessarily possess a simulacral quality. A drawing one makes directly in a computer obviously cannot be dismissed as not being original, but a digital file is recursive and can be copied precisely an infinite number of times -- to the point of rendering the very idea of an original obsolete, perhaps even absurd.  I’m interested in what a drawing can become and how far it can be pushed specifically with the use of digital imaging technology.   

The technique that I use to draw is a process that keeps me centered and focused in ways that others have not. It is in the act of drawing that I feel most present. The act, for me, is a meditation. It is this idea that lead me from making primarily illustrative and representational work to abstract work that explores line and form. Lines on paper have become lines on paper so to speak. It is in doing this work that I’ve become more conscious of the phenomenological aspects of what I’m working towards, and how it might be approached by a viewer. I think about the idea of really seeing something beyond passive viewing, instead making the process about what one brings with them when they look at any work of art.

We don’t experience anything in a vacuum. Everything we experience is affected by the cumulative experiences we bring to the specific moment we engage the work in front of us. I think of my drawings as voids that take on a meaning that is specific to the viewer -- in a sense they, like most things we encounter in life, are like a mirror revealing only what they see and not necessarily what I’ve made in the empirical sense.
