The prints are inspired by the organic, from biology and chemistry to physics. I see the organic forms depicted as things that could actually exist in our reality but are juxtaposed, stylized, and magnified so that they become alien and ambiguous. In actuality they are created from nothing specific in nature, but can easily reference many organic forms and enerigies. The titles given to the work reflect possibilities for explanation, but the mysteries are solved by the viewer and his or her associations to the work.
