This body of work is an interpretation of colors sampled from the environment combined with forms that reference authoritative power and balance.  Though the surface of these shaped works are entirely flat, the illusion of three dimensionality creates a multifaceted portal which reference not only the specific forms found on various bank notes and international currency, but also forms found in nature. I am interested in the forces and processes that produce and control the phenomena of the material world. The colors I use are sampled from the landscape where I am currently working in South Louisiana. Reflections from water, menacing storm clouds and Septembers exhausted foliage are among the sources from which I reference.

power ~ manipulation
The concept of technology also plays a role in my work. The essence of technology –that being the manipulation of nature- has permeated the human psyche with its changing forms and motivations. This “essence” is not foreign, but part of the inherent driving force of the human spirit which strives to challenge nature to yield a kind of energy that can be independently stored and/or transmitted.
