                                       Artist Statement

A deep interest in America History is at the core of all my work. As an artist I strive to transform and codify historical information into a visual abstract language.
To prepare for a new series, I extensively research a place, a time period, an event. From the information gathered, I then develop a visual coded language with repetitive motives, patterns and colors specific to the subject I am working on. As I proceed, the language morphs into a unique melding of imagination and facts with each piece produced free of direct reference but underpinned by the original information.
History is of course made of Science, Politics, Art, etc, and this richness allows me to explore far and wide. As a result each series is unique and as much about the details as the sweeping historical facts.
