Artist Statement

In these drawings organic shapes are dominant, monochromatic, and are often interrupted by mechanical grids. Planar directions, surface texture, wet & dry media are all pushed & pulled from 2D into 3D to respond to the gothic power of the natural world, specifically rock formations. Nature is not something to worship and aestheticize, it is under threat, dark and dangerous, and needs to be appeased because something is definitely wrong.
