Exploring the qualities of form and material, my goal is to present a visual balance of elements. Mirroring the rhythm that occurs so prevalently in natural systems of order, this balance has become ingrained in our subconscious and reflective of our identity. Art and nature are processes that memorialize what we experience and who we are. The art that I create, expresses visually what cannot be explicitly said.
Stephane Mallarme: “To name an object, is to deprive the public of three-quarters of its pleasure. The identity of objects should be revealed gradually…To suggest—that should be the poet’s dream.”
