The age-old struggle between man and nature continues fervently. My work underscores the struggle between these powerful entities as we grapple with technology to “master” our world, sometimes to our own demise, much as I struggle with technology to make these works. This line of thought beckons us to reconcile what ties and divides us with the animals of the world. It begs us to weigh our responsibility to conserve. Lines and colors clash and converge, abstracting nature into geometry or geometry into nature. We must find a peace between these conflicting demands to survive our own selves.
