I am an artist who works in painting, sculpture and installations.
My work makes use of circuitry as a metaphor of interconnectedness, more specifically between the spirit and a higher power. In this model, infinite power and wisdom come from the same source. In the same way that pulses of electricity move through a circuit board from chip to chip to perform a unique function or bursts of electricity jump through space within the brain to create a memory, the human spirit is electrically charged and can connect to this infinite power source. We are all connected and have a unique purpose.
I am exploring materials, symbols and other sensory input as
elements of a transformative space. The permanence and/or preciousness of the objects
in this space is important to me. I am reaching for the sublime.
No one else holds the keys to our spirituality, a direct connection is always available.
