I am concerned with the relationship of Part to Whole. Person to community; limb to body.
Whenever I establish a single “unit,” I then begin to concern myself with connections on an ever-larger scale. How does a person (to whom I’ve alluded symbolically, with a single eye, heart, or arm) relate to their community while dying of AIDS? How does that community communicate with its neighbors? The physical size of my work can range from an object small enough to hold in your hand to room-sized.
My ambitions, artistically, may be large, but my heart is always local-concerned with what is going on around me, with what is within reach of my heart and hand.
