Artist Statement

I am interested in exploring the relationship between nature and technological methods of imaging. Images generated by technology from scientific sources such as seismology, micro tectonics, oceanography, biology, and theoretical physics, have been compelling to me because of their evocative and mysterious qualities, and they provide new ways of seeing and contemplating the natural world.

In an effort to probe beneath surface appearances, my drawings refer to a micro and macro world of mysterious processes and events. The drawings are built from the repetition of small pencil marks that suggest an ongoing transformation. Special attention is given to the intervals and relationship of drawn to open areas of the paper. The transformative processes of the natural world normally unseen by the human eye, the passage of time, and the mysterious spaces that imply hidden forces, are the underlying themes of the work.
