For the past several years the primary focus of my work has been an ongoing, interrelated series of drawings and sculptures collectively titled SIMPLE. This body of work began as a studio exercise and is based in simple systems of repetition, sequence and dispersal. It has evolved into an investigation of Generative Process and the inherent nature of mutation, transformation, decay and collapse. At the center of these investigations is the ideal of a "self organizing system". The repetitive sequencing of individual marks, actions or events can, when viewed collectively form a holomorphic unity.
These works are made by hand, combining digital sensibility with a pre-industrial and decidedly inaccurate means of production. They inhabit a hybrid aesthetic, encompassing both desire for perfection, and the realization of that perfection's impossibility.
