ARTIST STATEMENT

My work investigates ideas about chaos and order. To explore those ideas, I work with materials and processes that allow me to maintain a high level of control (like laser cutting or CNC drawing) and I combine those with materials and processes that refuse to be controlled (such as poured or dripped ink mixed with solvents). This collision between order and chaos allows for a push and pull between my own intentions and what the artwork wants to become. The tension between my own desire to control every aspect of the work - combined with the excitement that comes from the potential for unexpected things to happen - places me directly at the intersection of chaos and order within my own artistic process.

I work in layered imagery, building complexity through the unexpected visual and conceptual connections that occur when information accumulates and erodes. The conversation that happens when organic forms meet geometric, when digital meets analog, or when light meets shadow - all create new connections and opportunities for discovery.
