My approach to making art is rooted in a personal desire to be immortal.
I feel a kinship with the Medieval master metalsmiths whose exquisite yet durable objects were precisely crafted to exalt the narrative of their time. In my work, I revel in how these centuries-old narratives continue to exert a broad influence on our own perceptions and actions.
Though my muse is Medieval my methods are thoroughly modern. I produce the images using an acid resist etching method on brass. The automated work uses clockwork gear trains, cams, and linkages made on machine tools from modern alloys and fasteners.
