My current drawings represent the primary stages of a new series combining man-made and organic form. I have a continuing interest in line, and how it relates to motion and energy in a work of art. My previous series have included transparent and sculptural elements, in addition to video installations. I attempt to create an environment where the vigor or force created by the form is retained in the piece. I'm also searching for an unexpected trace of order in chaos -- a flash of a new system of relationships that compel the viewer to continue examining the piece.
