Artist Statement
These drawings are an examination of the impermanence of individual societies.  My objective is to treat these examples of contemporary ruins as part of the greater narrative of history by removing them from their typical surroundings and displaying them as isolated objects or artifacts.  Many of our contemporary "ruins" parallel the ruins of past societies like the Roman Empire, for example.  A modern public swimming pool can be directly translated to the Roman public baths, just as a contemporary sports stadium bears many connections to a Roman amphitheater.  In many cases I choose to invent the structures that I draw from imagination, trying to work through the issues that would go into their construction, just as societal planners of the past and the present would have to do.  At other times I attempt to depict contemporary ruins beginning with the same process of intensive research and documentation employed by archaeologists.  In a process so involved with the depicted object or structure I am forced to wonder what the true longevity of our contemporary "ruins" will be.
