“My series, FORCES, represents the dissemination and movement of information and the unspoken word. In our world of immediate technology, information is in constant motion. In positive terms, we are able to reach out and connect across countless miles almost immediately. We can move information about in an instant. Are we ever satisfied? Our obsession to continually keep impersonal contact has severed the personal connectivity among people, but sets us physically in a frenzied quest for more technology. What we set in motion-the information we put out-is in our control; how it is interpreted-how it continues to move-is beyond. The questions being, what drives this into motion and what is the force behind it? It can be a visceral response, a synaptic reaction, an awakening in the soul, or an interplay of each. In the paintings, various organic shapes represent bodies of information that move about, morph, combine, and reemerge into something other than their original state. The dialogue and the outcome among the shapes produce various results, which in turn are set on their own course.
