The underlying focus of my work is to bear witness to a world in constant flux and filled with choice and struggle. It invites viewers to reflect on a multitude of issues that surround all of us. I make work about what I see happening around me. The world and some of it's complexities - conflict, danger, time, place, history, religion, and rapid developments in science, medicine, culture, and communications have been fair game as subjects over the last fifteen to twenty years. As a result, my aesthetic concerns and psychological well-being often aspire to marry the playful and beautiful with serious and dangerous subject matter. Images are combined in imaginative and aesthetic relationships in order to create narration and meaning. Notions about narration and meaning in turn lead to unexpected imagery and form. My intentions are not didatic. I believe that the work is rich in possible interpretations, and that it can provoke as many questions as answers. My process which explores affinities, oppositions, and hidden meanings is essentially a speculative and poetic one.
