Artist Statement 2016

Time pause.

I want a moment to last a lifetime. I want that moment to have its own life, changing and evolving over the course of its existence.

It is in moments that I can begin to understand my place in the world.I have found these moments in my natural surroundings, the neighboring forests, expansive fields, and quiet waterways that call me wherever I am.

Through a method of work that hybridizes aspects of drawing, painting, collage, and printmaking, echoes and reverberations of these moments are resurrected just as abstract as their origins. With a process of repetition and precision, the work allows for the contemplation of specific passages of time, their meaning and significance.

The final images pursue moments that I find most peace and reason in, the ability to

Pause Time.
