-A painted pixel, a small element, made complex through its relationship to the whole.

Similar to my paintings, in digital imaging thousands of tiny pixels merge together in a grid to form a picture. Removing, altering, or changing the individual pixels impacts our perception of the whole image. This notion of perception serves as my reminder that everything I encounter is only as I perceive it in that moment based on the details present: a combination of my personal history, projected experience, and knowledge. In my work I explore how controlling or manipulating the smallest details changes the perception of the whole.
