Artist Statement

 

My work is a digital assemblage shaped through a process of reconfiguration. This process has formed around a long-held fascination with the structure of time. Each finished piece creates an allegory for this fascination, physically and symbolically investigating time's structure.

I begin by applying lines free from rational control, subconsciously capturing the character of the present moment. While the line-work is not governed by a compositional intention, the act of drawing is focused on a specific subject. The resulting forms are continued consciously, with the intent of clarifying that subject. This cycle is repeated until many line drawings have been generated, each one portraying a unique perspective on the same topic. The drawings are then joined digitally and the resulting image is repeatedly arranged, dismantled, and re-layered before being printed as a photograph.

Drawing and photography share a concrete immediacy in their execution and produce digitally malleable results. They Indelibly record the moment in which they are performed, before being subjected to a process whose static result bares little evidence of their augmentation. Both of these mediums parallel time's nonlinear structure in their own way. Each work is an allegorical artifact laboriously mined from those parallels, in the belief that every moment exists contemporaneously.
