I believe there is a collective energy force present in all things, great and small. I like to scrutinize small and seemingly insignificant objects and ordinary situations until I can create pictorial evidence of that essential force. I hope the result of my work is not heavenly, not fantastic, not romantic, but very present. In my collaborative work with Hannah, I still want to create order out of chaos, but I'm admitting I'm not in complete control of a picture's destiny. I'm accepting the role of luck, fate, whatever you want to call it, in art and in life itself.
