Artist Statement
The sacred is within us and around us, in our experience on this earth. My work is a concretization of my awareness of the sacred in my own life; each work a devotional image to a memory. Through self-portraiture and personal symbols, I use implied narrative to piece together the essential elements of a particular experience, through the filter of recollection. My most recent cycle of work is centered around an attempt to hold on to a conception of my environment and my place within it. The relationship of dual natures, especially that of natural/manmade, past/present and epiphany/doomsday are at the forefront of my exploration.
