Artist Statement:


    Art has a unique capacity to intuitively and emotionally convey insights about complex subject matter. If there is a short circuit to wisdom, it is through art. I try to exploit the powers of art to relate secrets of nature that have only recently been uncovered. A key element in my work is exploitation of nature’s almost narcissistic self-similarity, her repetition of pattern on vastly different scales and in radically different contexts: the motion of the planets around the sun and electrons orbiting a nucleus; or waves on water and electron waves in a semiconductor. With such repetition, nature provides her own windows into otherwise secret worlds.
