                                                                    STATEMENT

 

 

Both my digital drawings and sculpture have to do with the animal spirit, not in the sense of cat dog or tiger but rather all animals. We are at the root animals. We share longings, fears, love, and  a drive towards sexual expression with other sentient beings. If we have a billion neurons in our brains, which we do, what does experience look like? I am after that or those images of experience.

In my work I try to express sensations of fear, pain, and the human need to comprehend the future, trying hard to look ahead through chaos (uncertainty) which greets us every day. Or the need to believe in the illusion of order and certainty.
