“To my eyes, objects have always been livelier than human beings. More static but also more telling. More moving because of their concealed meanings and their memory, which beats the human memory. Objects are keepers of the events they have witnessed… I have always tried to extract content from the objects, to listen to the objects themselves and to put their stories into images.”
- Jan Svankmeyer
“Our intention is to affirm this life, not to bring order out of chaos nor to suggest improvements in creation, but simply to wake up to the very life we are living which is so excellent once one gets one’s mind and one’s desires out of its way and lets [it] adapt of its own accord.”
- John Cage
“Language is the source of misunderstandings.”
- Antoine de Saint-Exupery, from The Little Prince, Chapter XXI (the fox)
I am a tactile painter and a technological art geek, constantly searching for ways to balance both aspects in my work. I was born in Wisconsin, grew up in Georgia, and currently reside in Baltimore.
