'A Universal Primitive' - The physical act of initiation, ‘A Not Knowing’, provokes a process of intuitive exploration of the poetic junctions between control and phenomena.

This wide open practice is based on the recognition of ‘The Natural’ or ‘Primitive’ as an approach to a spirit-realized form emanating from the energy within the matter found and an exchange with the subconscious-physical being of the initiator.

The interchange, combined directions and the assembled results of parts and process expose and evolve into a being/object of a deeper power, physicality and uncommon contemplative visual language.

The intent of this object process is to evoke a greater harmonic within the viewer/object interchange experience, the work being ultimately completed through the viewer’s unique exchange with the artwork. The viewer/object experience becomes as a continuum of the phenomenological process of the originally initiated act and informs an ongoing perceptual redefining of the object/event.
