Artist StatementAnything relates to everything. This cosmic order dwarfs me. Like the crack of pool balls, material affects and is affected by other materials. Unceasing motion ensues. How is there balance among this furious tango between order and chaos? This is my call to create. Relationships abound. The macrocosmic universe with stars guiding their planets is reflected in the microcosmic human world where parents guide their children. While the scale of matter increases, the central hierarchical essence remains. Drawing on Asian and African influences of line fluidity and shape starkness, I create works that strive for elegance, where subjects meld around each other like the controlled confusion of a couple doing the waltz- each reading the movement of the other. My work is a shot arrow, flowing but intractable- no putting ink back in the pen. Moments are fossilized in my work. In making these pieces, I become more whole by becoming a part of the whole of creation.
