Not knowing it when I began, I needed to build a society of images. If I have a style, it is in a process of making which depends on move then counter move, a call and response between projects, materials and language. Finding one image at a time, I am replacing an inherited system which translates experience through words to a system of visual images capable of revelation and restoration. I watch as one material image after the next gives back to corrupted language weight and meaning lost through rote tradition, abuse of power, and manipulation. It turns out language can be tested by an expansive visual world. Words can be restored to create a system with stable integrity. I am forever grateful.
