Statement

I work to create visual narratives. I am interested in spaces that mimic the mind, and situations where perceptions produce more questions than answers. Growing up in Southern Appalachia gave me the structure and setting of my private myths, my dreams, and my artwork. This is a place of secrets and opposition, pristine nature and pronounced privacy that leaves me with the feeling that there is much more to see than meets the eye. I interpret this world as though it were filled with intent, with symbols and omens that reveal truths and impossibilities. My desire to go beyond surface visibility has led me to create sculptured objects and environments that allow me and my viewers to go beyond the imagined insertion of ourselves into the picture plane or text, to physically exist in the same space as the imagined. My artmaking is an attempt to bridge the gap between the narrative arc of my waking history with that of this underlying one through exploration, analysis, and willed creation. The accumulation of scenarios and characters becomes the basis for an ongoing narrative, what I call “The Story of the Hunted”.
