Our perception of the world is inherently creative. We are continuously assembling the world we experience by giving attention to events and appearances that have meaning. Out of the ever changing and infinite perceptual field, only a small subset of potential perceptions surfaces in our stream of consciousness. Doing art is my way of exploring this perceptual process, discovering new things, images and meaning.
I am interested in the immensely complex and rich "perceptual field" from which we "abstract" meaningful shapes and events. The process is subtle, with order emerging out of chaos, with feedback loops involving the interaction between what is seen and what is "looked for", and a hierarchy of physical structures and culturally learned "realities". These works are more like discoveries where intention and chance interact in unexplainable ways (to me) -- a dialogue that teases order out of chaos.
A number of my works involve the integration of traditional techniques with digital processes. For example, I paint over digital prints and then bring them back into the computer for additional work and final printing. Conceptually, I see much of my work in terms of traditional printmaking, but I'm working with a "digital plate" rather than traditional substrates.
