About

My story being one of change with self as only constant, I am interested in issues on identity and perception shaping the flux of our experiential world. I interpret the process of perception as the unseen counterpart of form, both coexisting as part of a symmetry that has the observer as its axis. This symmetry forms the blueprint for much of my work.

 

The use of composite images allows me to shift my parameters of sensory viewing; segueing connective process and independent form into a coherent whole instead of pursuing each as an end in itself offers me a unifying, compassionate view of the physical world and a deeper appreciation of what it means to be human. It is from this second vantage point of seeing myself see that I allude to the observer as a layered presence, perceptible by its own spatiotemporal expressions, but essentially being unseen.
