SINEWS & SYNAPSES
It’s thrilling to discover a sprawling root system connecting thoughts that appeared to float like lily pads on the surface of a pond. Some ideas are associated by only a wispy tendril or two; others, entangled by dense dendritic ropes. Yet once everything is revealed as related, it seems obviously and necessarily so. My artwork is my way of exploring these connections: the relationships between my physical and mental experiences, how they are often erroneously categorized as separate in kind, and how introspection and attention shows their unity.
