Artist Statement
The effect of energy can be noticed through the act of decay upon both the natural and man-made world. From decomposing billboards on our urban landscape to the formation of rust on metal left out in the rain, I am interested in capturing a moment of decomposition. My work embodies the evolution of time and the immense forces of nature. I use our expanding universe as a metaphor for endless possibilities of compositions. My compositions incorporate innovative techniques in graphic design that I use to create work inspired by terrestrial and cosmic landscapes. I hand carve granite paste in low relief; then patina, hand draw, airbrush, and paint in intricate layers, to bring these imagined worlds onto canvas or wood.
