Artist Statement
My current work focuses on how advanced technologies have affected people and our environment. The images I use are mathematically based that are used as fundamental building blocks of the pieces. This is representational of the fundamental building blocks of life that have been acquired by science and engineering for industrial purposes. The goal of my work is to confront the viewer with an issue that may be unpleasant but the image is captivating. By doing this I want the viewer to question their view and relationship with the issues.
