Artist Statement

Through my optical drawings I want to present ‘seeing’ without seeing. Each drawing is an optical game that allows you to perceive something visually as if using the senses of an insect or a machine. They are like screens through which we may explore the vast distances that separate even the most intimate of connections shared between people. We all know and care about others, and yet you will be surprised sometimes by how little you actually know about their motivations and thinking. I started making these images with the aid of a neurobiologist who specializes in optics, and am using this drawing style to explore questions I have about how the eye works and how this affects perception.
