Artist's statement:
"Through a variety of media I explore the interface between reality and representation, solid entity and virtual image, tangible objects and their shadows. To understand and explore the physical world, we employ all different kinds of representation. I examine the boundaries that lie between the real and the unreal. Do the reflections of reality; shadows, images, television, etc. render us enlightened or oblivious?"
