Artist’s statement:

“I work observationally from the stuff of everyday life. Objects find themselves in arrangements by chance, by being left behind, set down and forgotten. They pile up in a chaotic way. The clutter becomes a metaphor for the pressure of time and space we live in. I look for a world that is created by the environment of the clutter. Thus an object can blend with a neighboring object to create a new image, a new language to deal with the chaos. Sometimes these images take on a human expression, a figure or figures, sometimes they just suggest.

These environments are ambiguous. Through examination of these forces on our day-to-day lives I try to create images that are relatable, that the viewer can immediately respond to and perhaps to realize this chaos is universal, part our world today.

 

Chaos Transfigured is a collection of works representing the imagery created from the chaos that exists in our every day lives. This imagery evolves into a kind of order that evokes different meaning to different viewers.
