In a transparent landscape, perhaps in the landscape of one's self, my work depicts uncertainty through images of humans and animals in a state of becoming or becoming undone. The lines may coalesce or fray, confine or release. Like a nest of neurons, the lines provide paths for activity; leading one's eyes through the artwork and forcing themselves into one's body. The lines visually and conceptually pulse to simulate a transformation of consciousness that is occurring in the forms represented. 


These anthropomorphic and zoomorphic ideals materialize into a landscape in which transparent figures are interacting in a combined, encompassing manifold. They pull, uproot, and hide the fragmented and systemic features to reveal intricate and repetitive systems that surround and penetrate the bodies.
