Artist Statement: About my work. I tear, I split, I separate. Down the middle, at the seams. Sometimes it has a surgical precision to it, sometimes it is merely happenstance. The thing is, the eyes cannot be trusted, for all that light makes is never the same for long. So I bind my perceptions together, picture by picture, hoping to capture the ever fleeting continuum of myself. That urgency gifts me closure and acceptance, and eyes I can finally seem to trust. At least until the next canvas.
