Statement of Work
Visual displays of information make sense of a complex world — and can be unlikely sources of beauty. My body of work draws on data sets and visual displays related to finance, technology, telecommunications, and other fields. I transform these materials into works of geometric abstraction by constructing a digital file and eliminating words, numbers, legends, and explanations, among other alterations. After that, I print the images in a variety of mediums, most recently using dye sublimation on metal panels.
The result has a dual quality: on the one hand, the creation of abstractions with pleasing formal qualities, and on the other hand, a lingering sense, conveyed by the highly-structured nature of the resulting images, of some kind of significance or encoded meaning that lies just beyond reach.
