My recent work examines representation. These images attempt to use the familiarity of the human form as a comparative framework to explore the methods through which meaning is encoded within the image. This body of work recognizes the techniques and physical tools of image making as allegorical extensions of the interior human mind; as parallel processes cascading from the same archetypal points of origin. Often referring to questions posed within the fields of philosophy and art criticism, these images are pieces of research in an ongoing study.
