My work investigates origins and historical details related to the senses. I am curious about what motivates us to seek fulfillment of the senses. Coveted objects, the allure of color and texture, tantalizing sensations of the palate and desire to create space for reflection and grandeur influence paradigms of commerce, culture and science.
I question the connections between impulse and existence. I search for explanations regarding ritual and necessity. I give homage to historical facts while alluding to personal experience.
