My work consists of many interconnected bodies, all radiating from a core interest in knowledge, its acquisition, its possibilities, and its failures. A few of these bodies of work are named or organized into lines of thought. In “Barriers”, I explore the interaction of natural and built spaces through the medium of dimensional/sculptural oil painting. In "Compressions", I simulate the futility of a desire to make three-dimensional organisms readable, conveyable, archivable- in other words, for the thing to become a document and for the organizing power of ordered thought to make that document readable. In “Typologies”, I document, study, and create models of religious spaces, seeking to draw connections between bodies, landscapes, and power-systems within the architectures of different faiths. In “Swarms” I paint or film masses of organisms behaving as a single group, exhibiting behaviors outside the ability of the individual organism- effectively erasing the individual and placing it within a network of incommunicable collective knowledge. In "Investigations" I experiment with ideas of personal knowledge and its limitations, personal ritual and its idiosyncrasies. These bodies of work are developed in parallel, gaining new branches of inquiry across a wide range of mediums, from painting, printmaking, and drawing to photo, video, writing, 3D modeling, and game design.
