By means of literal and figurative layering of imagery that is at once foreign and familiar, an implied narrative begins to take shape. When the viewer spends time with these works, their initial compulsion is to seek out meaning, to translate the imagery I have employed to follow the narrative until they find “ the rest of the story”. Rather than the viewer revealing something about the work, it is both my hope and my experience that the work begins to reveal something about the viewer.

May this body of work be at once uncanny and sublime, monster and the monstrance. May it reveal you to yourself as not merely the hero or the villain, beautiful or ugly, but to see “another quality” in both it and in yourself.
