Artist Statement

My work represent a search for certainty, a response to the disturbing mystery of the unknown and uncontrollable. For me the act of drawing is a scientific attempt to explain and know, systematically discovering the world through close scrutiny. Working exclusively from observation, each object I render is a triumph of discovery, a small reassurance that with enough study there is no mystery that can not be solved. I convince myself that the unknown is fleeting, and in each detail I am closer to mastering and understanding my own fate. For me, drawing is a confirmation of my own agency, self-affirming proof of my ability to know the world.
