Purely the pleasure in design and colour, "Kaos und Ordnung" was created during a summer in Kassel, Germany--perhaps a reaction and an admission of the influence of the author Rilke; this work maintains a remarkable 'darkness' despite it bright palette.
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.
