"The picture must be . . . a revelation, an unexpected and unprecedented resolution of an eternally familiar need. "
- Mark Rothko
Mark-making is my primary intent. I study each photograph for traces of drawings I have lived, marks I have experienced. In this sense, the photograph is an index—it points me towards something. This indefinable something is not arbitrary. A grass bed, tree shadow, surgical incision each hold, within the simplicity of their structures, unexpected patterns. Form is the internal logic which connects my photographs to one another. These connections are wordless resolutions of a familiar need.
