Intrigued by the ways we perceive truth and use data to support our view of reality, I begin with raw data collected from nature. These data are not numeric and there is no computer involved in my analysis. Instead these naturally occurring data, rudimentary elements from nature, provide an endless resource for my qualitative analysis. Each work is a dataset culled from my experience. The marks I create note my interpretation of the data and reflect the unique truth, logic, and beauty that I see.
My process mirrors life and our inclination to make sense of our lives with data. Our unique and individual experiences shape our perceptions of the world. What we see and how we see, are idiosyncratic. Being fully conscious of our inherent biases can help us cultivate an empathetic appreciation for our differences. While my biases certainly direct what viewers initially see in these works, my intention is for viewers to contemplate the data in their own way.
