Geometry and patterns figure largely in our interpretation of the universe through our senses, science, and cultures. Yet importantly, anomalies appear in both natural and constructed systems. Indeed, the tenacity of much life may be credited to anomalies that could be called flaws.

Philosophy, science and observation lead me to contend with the effects of random forces within orderly systems. Using mostly paper and ink, slow processes induce an equanimity I find useful in these times. This work cross-pollinates art, science, and personal experience, and includes references to games, drugs, idioms, and autobiographical elements. Starting with a systematic structure inspired by mathematics, I use visual layering to look at tolerance thresholds for nonconformity or corruption, noting how the mind selectively filters information when seeking authenticity and meaning.

Logic, perception, love, and uncertainty drive my curiosity. Reason, intuition and drawing are how I puzzle it out.
