Whether I have worn the hat of architect, writer, editor, or visual artist, the work has always come down to communication through language and image, connection through story and idea.  What fascinates me most, as both writer and artist, is how we continue to try to build or restore a narrative about the world and ourselves in it, despite our not knowing the beginning or the end of the story. We don’t know what the whole was, is, or might be, though we generate so many of the pieces themselves. Most telling, I think, is what we make of those pieces, those fragments of the tale, and how we rearrange the truth to satisfy curiosity and to ward off uncertainty. In my work, I explore the ways we imagine ourselves in the incomplete story with an unknowable end. Artist statements for individual works can be found in my Notebook.
