Artist's Statement

Shape, color, space, line
Collaborate with a subject
Track its every move

Observe the subject
It could be anything really
Translate into form

Research the subject
View fantasies, watch memories
Map movements in space

Acceleration
Retreating to a hush
Searching for semblance

Passage caught in time
Meaning rendered cryptic
Event, thought, suspend
