Wonder, optimism, and discovery are to me the most positive and exciting aspects of exploration of any kind. These are the central themes in Machines for a Perfect World. My main goal in putting this show together is to create pieces that incite these emotions and ideals in the viewer. The visual languages I utilize to this end are those of science fiction, industry, and architecture – aesthetic influences of mine from as far back as I can recall. Science and more specifically, the fictional accounts surrounding the future of scientific discovery have a particular resonance that has always captivated my curiosity and stimulated my imagination. Paralleling and complimenting this interest is my fascination with machines and building, and the processes involved therein.
