ARTIST STATEMENT

I am interested in abstract forms in nature, the portrayal of the data, the classifications, ordering and organization of the groups and in gleaning a character from the organism. My drawings layer a microscopic organism or an aspect of the organism not readily visible or recognizable, on a background diagram of a scientific program through which its environment is analyzed and responded to. The scale is altered to allow the viewer to see something not normally visible to the naked eye. The graphic data also represents something that is not visible – the biochemical software and hard wiring in the cell.
