I AM a deeply creative spirit. I have always loved making things. I am frequently overwhelmed with ideas or concepts and I imagine that this shows in the diversity of my portfolio- something I wrestle with. I trust that my audience will be able to navigate the varying themes in my work, to see the unifying threads.
I like to ponder the future, long- and short-term. I dwell on the past, near and distant. I think of my place here on Earth and our place in the Universe. I think about black holes and bone structure, dark matter and reflections in the rain.
Sometimes my only hope is to make Pretty Things, and on some days that's more than enough. But at my loftiest, I hope to challenge or inspire. I want my audience to get a glimpse of optimism, or maybe a flicker of something greater than all humanity. I want you to laugh, but I hope the jokes aren't too obvious. I want to surprise and confuse. I want you to ask yourself very strange questions...
"is this a spaceship or a person?"
"is there something romantic about that fireball?"
"would this be too weird hanging in our bedroom?"
That all depends.
