My work is a constant outpouring of singular impressions: clearly isolated images that capture flashes of emotion, changes in perception, or moments of recognition. I give fleeting thoughts as much consideration as monumental ideas: nothing is more important than anything else and every small thing has its place. My process is modeled after the methods of improvisational theater: I make a mark, then ask myself, “if this is true, what else is true?” I repeat this process with the addition of each new element, using personal experience to build a symbolic image. Each image represents an isolated narrative, yet all the images together tell a larger story. My accountability for the truth and permanence of this story is an important part of my identity as an artist. This is why I never work outside of my numbered series, and never destroy or hide any of the works.
