Artist Statement


I create artwork about personal visual experiences. Some are experienced out in the world and others are experienced through a machine. Through illustrations, installations, robotics and videos, I explore topics such as human perception of color, or the effects an oil spill can have on sea life. My artworks are connected through subtle elements dealing with either light or space, as these are the methods I use to heighten a pieces’ overall message. For instance, Spectral Dispersion is an installation with a color video projection played on a wall containing mirrors. The projection involves a design that unfolds as a combination of shapes that move or change colors. The mirrors are used to play with the design and space surrounding the projection. It is intended to attract viewers to become part of the piece through their reflections and shadows. Each viewer will invent their own visual experience as they interact with the piece.
