Ready to Hang

Environment is key to feeling, and I seek to create a sense of more than one environment, not only to examine what juxtaposition would look like visually, but also to create a "musical" dialogue for the eyes that avoids stagnancy and counterpoints the inherent dynamism possible in a static image.

​presented framed, in minimalist black metal shadowbox.

The grind and excitement of near-constant movement has given me a stormy and tense relationship to space, and to movement within that space. From walled-off Berlin, foggy Vienna, quaint Alpine villages, and myriad boxy American cities--each environment adding something subtle to my creations. I often pose the philosophical question--why would a thing need to represent another thing, if its own beauty in form should be recognized? I crave tension--seeking truth through examination of angles, trial--error, and the narrative that develops visually through the "indelibility" of contact between pen and paper.
