Artist Statement



In my work

I stand at the window

where rationality and irrationality meet.

I present to you a vision

of what I see.

I struggle as to

which side of the window

I stand.

In my work I attempt

to follow the wake in the air,

to follow the trail in the water.

I want to hunt myself down,

and struggle with myself for

clarity of vision through the window.

My work is the attempt

to make art that evokes

a feeling from the gut.

The attempt is to make art that is

devoid of intellectual involvement.

For intellectual involvement

can be clouded,

by education,

by society,

by culture.

I want the emotions

to be brought forth and then,

the questioning of what is seen.

The desire is to present to you

an emotionally filling piece

and questions for the eyes.
