Artist Statement/Focus

Artist Statement:

My work revolves upon the horizon created by our architecture, where infrastructure and experience meet. I join two canvases, an inside and outside, expressing phisically the division between the two.

My subjects are both iconic and personal. We have seen these images before, many times. We also have our own relationship wirh them, developed over time. Art can allow us to experience the familiar with fresh context.
