ART / EXPRESSION / EXPERIENCE

"Art is that which comes to a man, and stands between himself and an implacable witness – the work.

Artist’s Statement 

I have always drawn inspiration from the city, and its ability to transform and reinvent itself.  Objects of the past exist simultaneously with objects of the present (and future).  Architects must also contend with this duality.  Photographs constitute the working evidence of these changing realities and the primary raw material for my collages.  Images are combined and manipulated to create new and separate realities which in turn are parts of larger ensembles suggestive of a greater, continuing whole.

Negative shapes and space, linear and  planar elements  found in reality are abstracted into a new reality on the picture plane that explore concurrent architectural themes of scale, spatiality, process and order.  

I try through my work to identify with not solely a building type, but a building process: more specifically a way of thinking expressed as a direct result of a specific time, site and place: in effect a tangible record of a series of events and conditions.

My projects act as personal records of events and work experiences, however it was my architectural education and my early work experience in Asia which has had the greatest formative influence on my work.

 

Biography

Since graduating in 1994, I have practiced architecture in Hong Kong (PRC), Shanghai (PRC), London (UK) and New York City.  My ample travel has given me many opportunities and experiences by which to further explore my interests in contemporary art, traditional Asian art and calligraphy, photography, and the ever changing urban architectural condition.

Painting has always been a natural and conceptual extension of my interests in the built world and will continue to play an important role in my career.  Art is good!
