"Rather than pieces of art, my drawings are speculative responses to the question of what happens when information/language is stripped of meaning. The use of architectural graphic styles as purely compositional elements reframes images of language into new contexts. Objects, symbols and lines are organized in structures to reveal the expanse of autonomous architectural worlds.

The early drawings are formal explorations that take shape as tightly wound objects and collapsed protoperspectives. Similar structures are repeated, reorganized and draped in surfaces. As this approach progressed, the focus sharpened to the structural make-up beneath the perspective spaces and forms. Each is a study of how one act in a drawing compromises others.

The structures of charts, graphs and grids seem to support objectively the information contained within them. Even though the structure is entirely imagined, its neutral and unbiased nature endows the contents with a presumed significance. What may appear as information does not actually portray information.

The established structures legitimize the compositions' swirling ambiguity and successive disruptions. With these supporting devices, the viewer perceives the worlds with inherent confidence."
