"Propelled by a desire to both revel in and to transcend (perhaps as well to
ultimately alchemize) a persistent sense of displacement in the human world,
these works aim to fuse ancient and archetypal geometric forms with inky
randomness to form totems to the idea that the big mess of it all will be
beautiful eventually, and sometimes is so, even now.
These are images that, having traveled the arc of the Ugly Duckling paradigm
are emboldened to be quietly and defiantly elegant." - Lourdes Sanchez
