Dressing up the natural realm of everyday life brings me pleasure. Like cropping the flap of a dog’s ear, I tailor aspects of reality to enhance or conceal true circumstances. With this comes a sense of control that I carry as I navigate daily living. But the authority of choice is never without the leaking of the subconscious. I may give my hand permission to roam a drawing surface freely, without intention, but it will never perform marks without learned habits. However, this contradiction of naturalness and construction provides an exciting place to live. In fact, it is the only place available for anyone to reside.
