The impression of what is not there interests me as much as what is there. I am attracted by the notion that, in an instant, a day, or a year later, our present reality will exist only as an illusion. Through chance, systems, and the use of ephemeral materials, I make paintings and sculptures that are inspired by the space between reality and perception, the present and the absent, the normal and the abnormal.
