Artist Statement
I

For the past several years I have sought to address the relationship between two very different worlds. The first of these is the world of organic form (both biological and otherwise), where dynamic processes such as wave patterns and cloud formations hold particular interest for me, and the second is the world of the digital computer, whose various manifestations are becoming increasingly ubiquitous in contemporary life. The impetus for this body of work was the observation that the digital computer is radically changing human relationships—including, most significantly, our relationship with nature. By bringing the two worlds together in an extended series of abstract paintings and drawings my aim has been to suggest something of the complexity of this evolving shift in our attitude toward the natural world.
