Art exists in the flow of history, but has history become an endless succession of moments in time without any point of reference? My studio practice attempts to grapple with this question, recognizing that the lack of an apparent answer signals tension rather than a predetermined outcome. My practice and research challenge the notion of the historical inevitability of anything.
One area of contemporary life that is marked by mutual incomprehension and separation is the relation between the realms of secularity and religion. As a priest and an artist, I stand in the breach of these two spheres of knowledge and action. This duality is also within me. My artistic practice and priestly existence examine the tension between the two. In my art I draw on the energy of each in order to engage in a process of transformation and exploration of myself and of the viewer. This contested space is a site for new artistic discoveries.
