Windmill, 2015

Inter-connection is what I cultivate in my artworks. It has led me to create a political space where a viewer is engaged, but has the freedom to draw her/his own conclusion. Expanding on that premise, I believe in an art that can function in a non-polarized, intimate political way. The evidence isn’t found within a heroic gesture on the wall by the artist (me), but rather in the inner strength and creativity of the viewer. So I invite the viewers as participants/collaborators, to draw on handmade chalkboards, incorporated within my visual cacophony of imagery, and objects.

The imagery I have been focused on relates to Activist Philosophy, non-violent resistance, mind-maps of Humanitarian Leaders, and recently of what I call “Geo-Robots” which are inspired by Survivalism, and Geo-Engineering.  In other words, I am interested in models and catalysts for social change, outside of mainstream media discourse.
