Artist Statement

I work in serial research-based format to investigate subjects of uncommon interest. Beginning with a specific set of images and forms, I study a subject using line and contour, building iterations within a series that both abstracts and carries with it an emotive quality of the original. Most recently, I have taken an interest in suits of armor, utilizing various sections of suits, to investigate both their historical purpose, and complex physicality. Formal renders have been left behind to query textural silhouettes and gestural abstractions which are currently finding their way into paintings and installation.
