Artists' Statement:
Incrementally we analyze, pixelate, and quantify the components of our daily experiences. Although we can’t see the proliferation of signals and techno-chatter that our devices emit, their energy is palpable. And yet, we don’t know the affect this has on us, or the environment.

In my current works on paper I imagine and depict the invisible activity of subliminal signals and juxtapose them with naturalistic clouds. My hope is that in our ever-increasing impulse to connect immediately with things and places outside of ourselves, that we don’t forfeit time spent on humble meditation of the sublime: of those enigmatic sources larger than ourselves- wind, light, and air.
