Rooted in a desire to replicate the conditions and curiousness of existence in the natural world, and marked by bold play and experimentation, my body of work explores the boundaries between fragmentation and integration to analyze and celebrate human happenstance to our shared “bliphood,” or our “blip” of being alive.
Human thought and perspective is often limited to the spheres of our societal structures and our lives within them – not wrong, but far from the full picture. From thinking about our interactions with the world from the smallest of perspectives – say, that a teaspoon of soil contains more living organisms than there are people in the world – to the largest – we are living on a planet revolving around a star, which is one of ~100 billion stars in our universe that is expanding at an accelerating rate – I find infinite curiosity, excitement, and drive to create art that imparts upon others a reminder of this all-encompassing perspective and our blip within it all.
To give thought to our truly extraordinary existence, I create in the same way as the natural world – without thoughts of importance, right/wrong, or final result. I impulsively bring physical form to my flow of consciousness. The result is different materials, styles, and ideas building upon one another to depict a world where every object and interaction is just as important as the one next to it – the same as our own.
