October 05, 2017
In this solo exhibition, Out There From Right Here: new works, I explore the act of traveling and the concept of distance. Using the confines of their surfaces, the works use the space given to them. Bumping against the edges, floating and drifting safely inside their boundaries, the speak about the infinite and the limited. How far can one go when in such a perceivably small space?

Beyond The Surface: A Survey of Contemporary Drawing
May 06, 2016
We live in an amazing time artistically; a little over one hundred years ago a show of this nature wouldn’t have been a possibility.

Oddly, deception and mimicry proves a useful way to reveal truth. The pieces themselves become “real things”, objects made by hand that don’t require anything more than the characteristics already possess.
