    'Seeing' addresses the notion of inherent potential and the understanding of meaningful perceptions from chaotic environments.

    It is rooted in a quote from poet and philosopher Paul Valery, “To see is to forget the name of the thing one sees.” When the viewer no longer sees a graphite line as only a graphite line, but instead appreciates its essence and perceives it as part of a greater whole, they have in a sense forgotten what it is they are seeing, and experience with fresh eyes. This phenomenology is what aesthetically drives my practice. Conceptually, it is rooted in the theory of gestalt – a theory of visual observation that studies our ability to acquire and maintain meaningful perceptions in an apparently chaotic world. While this body of work started as a purely aesthetic investigation of materiality and order, I have come to regard the choices that I make within my artwork as metaphors for the ways in which we as a society readily accept organization, rules, and control. My sensibilities are based in the social structures of control into which I was born and raised. Seeing Is has become a platform for me as an artist to directly address the subconscious implications of these systems.
