A Statement from the Artist

Coming from a place where words are unhelpful and unnecessary, it is difficult to come up with the right things to say about what my art is, or what it means, or what I want for it to mean, or what I was thinking when a certain piece was created. Knowing that eventually what is understood or experienced from the work that I produce is ultimately determinant on who is seeing it, I can say that these are experiments.

It might not so much have to do necessarily with creativity, but expression. It need not be related to a sound or an image, but instead, a feeling or a drive, a sensation to be explored within the realms of the physical world. To fulfill a desire for fullness, or completeness, oneness. Through any and every path that presents itself, it is the ultimate goal of every living thing. The result of a combination of certain stimuli at a certain place, during a certain time. This is a place of creative expression. When we lose sight of this, we lose sight of reality.

My works are created from a place of curiosity, vulnerability, necessity and courage. As an environmental and geospatial student my pieces reflect a need to understand the mundane through the abstract. My work in remote sensing technologies has given me the unique opportunity to display the world I live in, as seen from satellites while art has given me the opportunity to display the world as seen by my own two eyes in a way that I feel explores the sensitivities often hidden in a technological world. While studying art in 2012, I decided that being an art student and being an artist were two entirely different things and thus began my journey through geography and geospatial technology. The artwork I produce reflects combinations of these disciplines as well as something else entirely that is best described by my paintings themselves.
