I'm an artist and an anthropologist. My studio practice explores the confluence of nature, humanity, and technology; or rather matter, energy, and consciousness. My technique is grounded in the classical Roman and Byzantine mosaic medium, and executed in contemporary castoffs from the twenty-first century construction industry. I work directly with private clients, art consultants, architects, and designers to create site-specific fine art and architectural installations for a range of healing, commercial, and residential spaces.
PHOTO: Ether is one of ten artworks exhibiting at M3 Gallery in Pineville, NC. A number of them have sold and shipped out already, but here, these artworks inhabit the first two rows of my Studio page. Many of them grapple with the metonymic relationship between 'tile' and 'mosaic'.
