ARTIST STATEMENT: The situation that I find most compelling is one where my body has recognized something which my mind has not thought (or can only think). There is no particular kind of form that is inherently better at creating such a situation. A classical figure is present in one way, its gray box pedestal in another. Each possesses useful aspects or properties that the other lacks. This notion opens up important possibilities. Uniqueness is not superior to banality any more than complexity is superior to simplicity.
In a poem, a Vermeer is not of greater value than a screwdriver. Each is a word with a particular pattern of sounds. Either may be essential in obtaining a meaningful condition. In a language of physical form, every form is a particular rhythm of matter moving through a space that is governed by gravity. One form may be highly allusive, another not; one may be identifiable while another has no name. I do not prefer one form to another; my desire is to be alert to the potential of their differences.
