Artist Statement

A Priori and A Posteriori, my most recent series of drawings is an “a la mode” Genesis seen through a prism of popular science and materialism. A Priori and A Posteriori merges the tangible fruits of our progressive secular culture with the spiritual ideals and myths of a previous more pious century.

My charcoal, graphite, and mixed-media miscreations are birthed via a host of digital photographic and 3D rendering technologies. I employ these digital technologies to generate virtual models. The resulting models or “renders” are the basis for the large-and small scale drawings, sculpture, and mixed-media works that compose the chimerical cosmology of this series.
