Words shape the drawing, yet offer no explanation. They are lines dispersed into a
ponderous mass. As images become material, objects, figures, moments, air, and words inhabit a surface, and reveal something fleeting and uncertain of their materiality. Drawing’s tendency to endlessly transform charges the whole of my imaginative process.

Through the proces I am speculating on visuals and messages from an ominous future. Watching in first person, intense moments play out in faded color. Dust, rain, and wings blur the edges off the frame. As these atmospheres expand into sculptural work, I join, cast, fire, glaze and carve material.
