My art is like a visual seed that is planted in the observer’s eye, taking root in his/her mind. This generative process is guided by what I consider to be a living, formal language that is given substance by the anamorphic forms I create. The pieces exhibit organic or biological characteristics, and can be compared to marine life, microbes, or fungi. The colorful, bulbous, pod-like forms expand and pulse with life, their bodies seeming to mutate and spread. Encapsulated within each form are marks, textures, and patterns: elements that comprise or reflect an inner language. The meaning elicited by the work is active, alive, and challenges the viewer to capture it... but like attempting to grasp globules of oil in water, this can be slippery and evasive. I see my job more as that of a keeper, even a breeder, of these living polysemic entities, rather than a translator of their cultural presence.
