My work explores the visual and scientific constants of bodies, systems, and complex structures. Through materials I investigate the underlying unity that exists amidst the fundamental properties of nature. I use organic materials and technology to manifest the unseen realms of the internal body and the expanses of space, and to illustrate the interconnected nature of such seemingly disparate proportions.
I find connections to the body in the materials that I use viscerally and visually. The current inkjet work I am engaged with allows me to access the unknowable in a language I can use to confront existence, bodies, origins, and how the altering of scientific images and abstraction reveal and reinterpret those. I delve into the multi-vectored configurations of space, relating quantum particles to microbiology and cosmology. I provoke paint and inks physical potentials, wielding them into visceral, fluid states, allowing the natural force of gravity to influence their movement. I create work that can at one angle be read as bundles of nerves, veins, and pools of fluids, yet synonymously can be interpreted as gaseous formations and galactic expanses.
Through a process of alchemy I create plastic abstractions. My work unifies the visual and scientific constants of human and celestial bodies and the complex systems that they share. I strive to visually communicate that we are all part of the whole. There is no separation between self and the environment in which we exist. I use organic materials and modern technology to materialize the unseen realms of the internal body and the vastness of the Universe, and to illustrate the interconnected nature and commonality of such seemingly different realms.
