CV

For most of my fine art career, I have been working with more traditional representations of the body..... figurative work. Lately I have been translating into a much more abstract concept of the body, manifesting itself in just the spine or DNA sequence. The body is still there, but less literal. I find myself entranced by pattern, ritual and the mechanical workings of this human existence. Code, hidden meanings and function, both on the individual and the whole seem to reach out to me and pique my interests, as I examine structure and ideology.
