Artist Statement

Step one: the meta line followed to ... Step two: the many lines of choice in market consumption. Traversing from Point A to Point B. Further definition of Point B superimposed upon the first linear action. A cross-hatching of Newmanesque "zips" shown at a new angle and brought alive with electronic media. In essence, a traveller seeking results - i.e, his "daily bread" - of his travails (yes, working it). The hand-powered and the hand-composed improvisation based on the results of a mechanized mediation. What's the point? In circumspection the point goes to there, the this becomes that. What is in essence only a relation of comparative values and changing absolutes. As we travel, we gain a new perspective on our needs. We sense that beyond another horizon is where we can find what we're looking for. The visible becomes immaterial becomes invisible becomes new materiel. What is it you sense when that leads you to what you need? When the sense becomes scents that become cents for the hunter. Where is the target of practice for the seeker? Why for art thou whither? How has it come to pass that this is where we're at? Who are you now that things have come to pass?
