Artist’s Statement 

I have a strong sence of affinity with a bare, uncompromising landscape. It is the home of my being; one filled with serenity, almost with emptiness.

I wander in that landscape, through its varied strata; out of the timelessness and immateriality of space into the layers of earth and hollows of the ground.

I'm searching to find expression for the unmeasured, the undetermined. I'm looking for the light within darkness.

Time vanishes; only the infinite universe remains and its pervading silence. Within, there lies a deep intuition that I'm part of something surpassingly greater than this presently given temporal existence and its myriads of shapes and structures.

All the immutable is present, beyond the transitory.
