Artist's Statement

My work explores man's desire to harness and control nature. On the flip side the work is also a celebration of nature and man. Both go hand in hand and are dependent on each other

I use the most advanced technology with classical drawing techniques. Light is the main source of the work, which also addresses the issue of time. Scratch marks are etched into the multiple layers of glass. The light above refracts off the markings creating a three dimensional quality. Once the light is off, the image disappears.

The eye passes through the layers of glass the way memory passes through time. The image is suspended within the clear block, creating a delicate tension between the solid and the ethereal, the traditional and the experimental, nostalgia and potential.
