Artist Statement:

The images begin with elements of reality which are set into new contexts:
Meaning change. Time and space collapse. Mysteries arise. The obvious is obscured. The obscure is clarified.

The work develops through the integration of familiar organic forms with distinct geometric structures.
In the dichotomy within, I look for inspiration.
In the synergy arising, I capture energy.
In the tension between, I create an uneasy balance.

The common becomes unfamiliar, the mundane becomes consequential, the Essence is given form.
