I am fascinated by technologies that extend human vision, and how the discoveries they make possible advance human understanding.
Through telescopes’ ability to register different kinds of light we probe the mysteries of the cosmos: dark matter, dark energy, black holes, remote galaxies. We even transcend time and space, viewing images of the early universe and the birth and death of stars.
I paint in watercolor for its translucent qualities, which translate into depicting colored light.
Working on a press expands my visual range: watercolor monotype merges the interactions of water, color, and gravity. Combined with multiple layering possibilities, this medium has its own unique characteristics. I can create work that appears to arrest the motion of water and make gravity tangible; to make seen what’s unseen."
