The generosity of the world around me offers a complex range of visual and psychological
questions. Information and report are suspect, fact and fiction overlap. I find my distrust of
information to be the motivation to propel my search for some form of authenticity. Even with
the acquisition of truth there will always be an immense well of mystery and uncertainty.
My work is not attempting to create visual illusion but is the cumulative response to the nature
of image and narrative, the byproduct of the observed and imagined, the unification and conflict
between the mind and process. Through the construction of images originating from painting,
drawing, print and video, a desire remains to embrace the diaphanous position between the
conscious and unconscious. These images, inspired by verbal and visual memory are an attempt
to understand the ephemeral nature of form and space. I am interested in the physical processes
that go into the creation of prints, The active experience of constructing images from idea fragments,
sensations, and memory dictates their ultimate visual meaning. My intent is to recreate
that illusive space that exists where the ethereal and the concrete world overlap, as in the waking
consciousness experienced just after a dream.
Printmaking and digital applications continue to influence my process of exploration and experimentation.
Working with changes of scale, color, transparency, and the reinterpretation of
drawing, remain in constant flux. I work between the two worlds of digital and analog, sometimes
settling on the print as a final form and others where drawings or paintings arrive at the
The process of painting is the first step in demystifying the world around me. I have found the
flexible nature of printmaking to be profound, not as a way to reproduce images but to alter
them. There is an inherent quality in the medium that allows for change and manipulation to
take place. Through all forms of printmaking the ability to change course and respond to the
process leaves me with innumerable choices and the potential for further investigation.
