I am interested in the systems people create in order to organize what they perceive in the world around them. These systems can be based in science, religion, psychology or philosophy. No matter how cerebral a system or idea may appear I believe it is always experience through our physical senses. In order to communicate balance between reason and the senses I paint imagery of the body which expresses emotional understanding juxtaposed with systems of verbal and/or mathematical language. Whether the viewer chooses to focus on the "rationality" in the words, or the "sensory" in the bodies each remains equally significant within the physical object.
