Artist Statement
A single physical space can be perceived in multiple ways. Each view provides a unique perspective frozen in a particular moment in time. I realized this years ago when I was struck with a powerful vision. I saw a road that seemed to twist like a ribbon. It must have been some sort of illusion. I have never forgotten it, and from that moment on I believed that physical space has hidden aspects that can only be recognized by the human soul.
 
Perceiving space and time in the mind is closely related to personal memory and illusion.  I believe perception and memory occur simultaneously. Yet, how do memory, illusion and imagination work with human perception? This is the fascinating phenomena I seek to understand and explore through my work.
