Art to me is as much about visual study as it is about physically exploring and creating. My interests are in the observation of botanical forms, their substructures and surfaces. Through my observations of nature, I create works that mimic organic life. In the process of creating multiple pieces there is a convergent evolution in appearance. While each piece is distinct and unique many share similar traits of basic shapes and surfaces.
“Morphology” is a branch in the discipline of biology. It is the study of the form and structure of organisms and their specific physical features. In the same way that biologists study species, I study the appearance of forms through their shape, structure, color, texture, pattern and size. In the study of these things we are able to define and know life.
These works mirror elements of existing organic life and combine synthetic and non-traditional materials to create a tension between the definable and the indefinable.
