My sense of place, as an artist and as a human being, is in a continual state of in between. The two poles of this state are the physical and digital worlds. It is a constant mediation between the actual and the ephemeral: a moment-to-moment negotiation of being, thinking, and communicating. My work as an artist addresses this mediation. New, interesting questions arise when the two poles are brought together in the form of traditional painting (physical world) and digital media (virtual world). I am grounded in this discourse.
