Artist Statement

“I paint religions by codifying the ephemeral into rituals. The sacred in myth or nature is coded into a recipe then ritualistically followed, generating a facsimile, invoking the god-form. The code limits the unconceivable. The representation of this code is a religion. Some parts of the ritual are gestures, some drafted lines and curves, and others are constructed pieces of wood floating above the paper.”
