“Inspired by Zen philosophy, the notion of the reductive that finds essences, takes front position in my art-making at the moment, as well as in life. Like multi-dimensional aspects of memory condensed into single moments of receptivity, my personal archaeology fuses meanings of distance and nearness… the sun’s reflection on a surface as I pass… stones buried on sand… an ancient burial seen from the air… the shape of a body under a sheet.  To be able to keep an attentive focus is a gift and a rarity these days, it allows the senses to sharpen and their receptions to appear like ceremonial imprints.”
