My work is composed of places and things that, at a particular moment, strike me as evocative of particular emotions or ideas in my own psyche and perhaps that of others. I seek to identify and commemorate the elements that spur such feeling, and in doing so, to examine my own experience and that of humanity in general. I see analogous relationships between visual characteristics of certain places and the situations that compose human existence. I attempt to convey a sense of the vague longing for something just beyond the grasp of our consciousness that I believe influences all endeavors of humanity in ways unexamined or unacknowledged. I also enjoy using the occasional oblique reference to ideas from art history and world events, as well as to personal history, literature, movies, and music; these are usually oblique because they take shape in the process through means that are as dimly understood to myself as they may be to the viewer.
