Artist's Statement

I interested in beauty, but I mistrust it. Instead, I look for beauty that exists in tension between nature and artifice, the awe of visual spectacle, and humanity’s desire to bridle nature and time. As a child, I often fantasized about nature, and my determination of it – at least in my mind - fulfilled a sense of control that I lacked in life. As an adult, I find myself returning to these concerns and using them as the subject of my artwork, while considering their larger symbolic relevance, both personally and societally.
