The inspiration to my work is the duality of the human condition. What fascinates me is the seeming paradox of opposites, dichotomies of all sorts living side by side with each other in my own life, in that of others, and in the grander history of human kind. In my work each new piece is a kind of alchemic act towards living with this paradox. All of my work evolves directly from my personal story and is based in identity concerns. I don’t consider my work to make finite statements but rather see it as evidence left from an ongoing life process.
