Connections, logical and illogical, apparent and hidden, exist in the gaps that lead from one idea to the next. Through a complex, forking maze of ideas, my work progresses with haphazard diligence through a realm that addresses: the architecture of animal burrows, 19th century barber poles, radio antennae, picket fences, conflicted borders, flags of refusal, security and paranoia, shooting range targets,"No Trespassing" signs, empty billboards, fields (all kinds), folly, mineral extraction, interference, noise, attention, and the periphery.
