Artist Statement

My work is an attempt to illustrate transcendence. I believe that repetition is the foundation of clarity. The use of repeated patterns in my work serves the same function that a mantra does in meditation. The techniques I employ, screenprinting and non-traditional paint application, give the work the appearance of mechanical reproduction. The diminished evidence of the human hand creates a visual purity.
