Haunted by surging technology, strange new science, wanton resource consumption and destruction of environment, I envision a future when machines replicate humans and ancient demons to perform mundane tasks. In wry humor I use the computer to counter dystopian thoughts. I fuse crisp stylized graphics with painterly imprecision to create charming, stylized, quixotic scenes. Within these oases I investigate the interconnection between nature, anima and technology.
Fine line and hard edge interlace with nuanced marks. Rarefied, refined portions devolve to irregular, conspicuously crude elements and seemingly haphazard expanses. Outwardly unrelated bits sheer, shift and crystallize into sublime compositions filled with delightful inventive twists.
Via a sophisticated, complex layered architecture of scanned analog drawing, vector drawing, digital painting and photography I simulate the chaotic disjointed quality of modern existence, allowing zany, abstracted figures to coalesce—purposefully inexact in multi-faceted sur-reality.
