My work aspires to present the viewer with a vocabulary of shapes and lines and the relationships between them to create a clear but undefined statement that is felt as a whole as opposed to being read as a definable narrative. The gestural aspects of my work imply energy and movement and the desire to be in the same space as the viewer. Engagement with the work becomes a meeting where the viewer can dialogue with an object or image that has not been seen before, that has no precedent for story making, and creates a space for experiencing the new and unknown.. I see this as a way to confront viewers with their ability to accept and be at peace with their own inner dialogue, and of questioning the biases they bring to any unknown entity. I hope the work accomplishes this with my use of shapes and line qualities that intrigue the viewer, simultaneously drawing their attention to the piece and their own relationship to it.
