STATEMENT:

Drawing is not only an artistic practice it is a way to view the world.  I experience the world in multiple visions and the translation of my experience exists within various mediums and techniques.  Without light, the reaction of vision would not exist. When light is altered, the object of perception changes as well, allowing the viewer to experience the same object or scene in a variety of ways.  The experience of the world changes depending on the time of day, it is a cycle of perception.  I challenge myself to explore all of these cycles and then transfer my experience through drawing.  The current process that is the topic of exploration is process itself.  Everything that exists within this world has a process and continues to cycle after the demise.  Decomposure is a part of the life cycle that is frequently unobserved or underappreciated by most societies.  By illustrating the process of decomposition within multiple states and media, a new cycle is created for the recently demised or perished.
