Artist Statement

For a number of years now I have been trying to create drawings on a computer that have the immediacy of hand drawn works. Len Lye achieved that immediacy working directly on film and his works along with Emile Kohl were my jumping off point. I also wanted to work in real time so that the works had a freshness and spontaneity. i am working to include an element of motion graphics in the future.
