“My work is about the ever-evolving idea of control and how we get there. The lines control the colors, the colors control the eye, the eye controls what we see, what we see controls what we think, and on and on. In this exhibition, I wanted to show both the sky and the earth in a harmonious dance and to move the viewer in a slow progression towards a destination that may end here or may continue to the far reaches of the globe.”
“Destination is my perception of the earth and the sky meeting.”
