I have been interested in the apparent dichotomy of how people create and react to experience. On the one hand, there is an immediate sense of being in the present moment. On the other hand, there is a dissociated doppelganger of this mindset. This behavior seems focused on documenting, judging, and disseminating every experience, not being lived but examined. A collision of emotions, elements, or psychic states forms a basis for a sensory language in my paintings, music, film, and sculpture. Here, photographic dot patterns form a basis of optically recognizable imagery, which is then painted over with abstraction; the photographic elements being analytical and the abstractions being experiential.
