"My goal as an artist is not to duplicate what nature does best, but it is to ignite the sensations of the stunning world we live in by making artwork that rearranges three-dimensional space through the use of visual surprises of scale, viewpoint and dimension. My explorations of scale in the ‘Vessel’ series, responds to an ancient desire to create imagery that speaks to a bigger cosmos. I am inspired by Egyptian icons and sculpture using scale to speak to a larger physical and spiritual world, a world we can imagine but cannot seem to fathom in our limited human bodies. My boats also explore the cosmos by placing the viewer outside the realm of what we normally experience, allowing him to imagine a view from another world. All of this I do in hopes of adding to a bigger discussion about the importance of who we are and why we are here."
