    My work began with an interest in mechanical diagrams and technical manuals. I would replicate them with red oil. This combination of subject and medium reminded me of anatomical drawings and cadaver studies. Stumbling upon an old technique applied to modern objects, I immediately became captivated by this kind of visual dissection.

    As I looked deeper into the physicality of objects and organisms, layers of meaning and associations became impossible to ignore. My interest had shifted from a purely visual examination of objects to an anthropological excavation and assessment of my personal environment.

    The results are unpredictable and ever-changing. But that’s the point. I’m not looking to prescribe answers of guidance. My goal is to catalogue – to investigate, dissect and examine – to provide access and insight to the fleeting moments of the present and recent past.
