Bio:
In the field of molecular biology we work with systems and materials that are understood but not seen.  Our experiments and processes are viewed second-hand through results of chemical interactions left on a plate, or a photographic image of a gel marked by a passing reaction.  Our work seems to exist at an odd intersection between the abstract and the concrete.    

My work is representative of that idea.  If you draw close to any object, soon it begins to take on abstract qualities.  For example, we are used to seeing still-life images at a certain distance, armís length or more.  Yet, once you enter into a flowerís stamen for a look around, you arrived at Terra Incognita where everything is fresh and unknown.  

In these images Iíve tried to move in close for a different view: to focus closely and sharply on the flat of a petal or a cupís curve to set the image clearly in the real world, yet let the field dissolve into forms that are un-noticed periphery in everything we see.

I transform thoughts and emotions onto paper with an altered reality using alternative processes depicting elements of abstraction, lust, comfort, sadness, and existence.
