Artist Statement

 

I feel that one experiences and draws conclusions about the world through the assembly of mismatched ideas and sensorial memories.  Sometimes the associations of these ideas are seemingly random and other times there are lines that can be drawn between them that may lead to overarching truths or conclusions.  Ultimately these conclusions are unique, ephemeral and larger than the sum of their parts.  My work is an attempt to present the viewer with an assembly of ideas, manifesting themselves as multi-layered imagery, which might lead the viewer to conclusions they may not have arrived at in any other way.
