Artist Statement

Through my work I envision moments of experimentation and discovery. My current egg tempera paintings embody the quest for narrative alternatives. The history of science and optics inform my recent work.

What often interests me most about science is the story behind the research and discovery. Behind every theory and conclusion there is a human story, sometimes mundane, sometimes extraordinary.

Discovering, analyzing and understanding phenomena are practices that artists and scientists share, but differ in approach. The profoundly strange and wonderful ideas offered by quantum physics, alchemy and science-fiction find a visual adaptation in my work. Pseudo-sciences and super-natural investigations are also very intriguing as wellsprings for narrative potential.

Through a combination of visual and narrative experiments, I explore the nature of reality, history, gender and personal experience and hope to create images that are at once captivating and anomalous.
