Simple, commonplace observations and their afterthoughts are at the foundation of my practice. My work is often a directionless stream of consciousness grounded entirely in the present moment, a meditative engagement with and an entropic questioning of the essential elements of life and nature.
Poetic forms, when amalgamated with visuals, create engaging spaces for expression. In Symmetry, nature is bi-directional and responsive to human inspection. However, it does not fail to capture the noise of our daily thoughts. From a visual perspective, only the first quadrant is dominant—an effortless stretch of the imagination can form all other quadrants. The work I bring into being is the acknowledgment of that very noise and extrapolation. It continually attempts to subdue the two and achieve complete mindfulness of the most fundamental.
