Fascinated by the patterns of the universe, I find myself obsessed with both the fundamental rules that underlie these patterns and the awesome beauty of their expression. The realization that the spin of a seashell is the same as that of a galaxy, that the way a river branches is identical to the way blood flows through the body, that the very distribution of mass in the cosmos mimics the shape of neurons has opened a set of universal symbols for me to use in my art. My hope is that by accessing these icons and hovering in the ambiguous spaces they create I can end up in a place that reveals the singular nature of all things.
