Artist Statement

In much of my work loosely painted patterns and texts employ symmetry, repeated forms, and emotive text.

My history with spiritual architecture framed by my upbringing in the Catholic Church manifests in installations in which I frequently employs the divination technique of dowsing. Employed by early Roman churches to augment spiritual transformation, my practice is about connection, whether it be through the hand making marks or through sensing the influence of magnetic currents at work beneath the exhibition site.

My wallpaper, painted books and installation projects build on my history of such investigations, alluding to attractions of all kinds, including lovers, failed attempts, and other artists, which ultimately create patterns that might be discerned on both physical and metaphysical levels.
