Artist Statement

How do I see? Subjectively, to make sense of the world around me. Objectively, to fragment and simplify what I see. A face becomes a series of shapes given value by light. In much the same way, the wing of a bird is manifested as a series of triangles caught in flight. Thus, the pencil represents a tool for deconstructing/decomposing vision. Through the act of drawing, complex form is easily broken down into a series of intricate and comprehensive angles and measurements. This impartial quantification unites the hand, the medium, and the eye to create visual identity. Ink then fixes the fleeting lines into a solid and permanent body.
