My current work involves an exploration of modern and ancient images of the cosmos. I am inspired by photographs from the Hubble Space Telescope and illustrations from historical texts, as well as by scientific instruments, past and present. I am interested in how these devices and images reflect the world view of the people who created them.
My work attempts to investigate the disparity between what we feel about the universe and what we now know about it.At what point will our mythologies catch up with our knowledge? Can we extract order, pattern, or harmony from our lives in the midst of frantic change? What new forms of ornament can express this? As an artist, I acknowledge a responsibility to search for ways to create context and meaning that helps connect people to each other and the world.
