about the work

  • Sometimes, plants are involved.
  • Sometimes, a space sits empty.
  • Sometimes, a vision grows in the head.
  • Sometimes, current reality is just not good enough.
  • Sometimes, I work with plants.
  • Sometimes, plants teach me things about life.
  • Sometimes, as in all the time, they tend to fill up my living space.
  • Sometimes, plants make their way into my work.
  • Sometimes, light is involved. It is essential.
  • Sometimes, it’s natural.
  • Sometimes, artificial.
  • Sometimes, as in a majority of the time, these plants are bound by fabric.
  • Sometimes, as in fifty percent of the time, plants are grouped together with chairs and tables and called “sculptures.”
  • Sometimes, as in a quarter of the time, I scan them with devices to rebuild their physical presence – digitally, these become virtual presences.
  • Sometimes, as in ten percent of the time, I photograph them.
  • Sometimes, as in none of the time, and all of the time simultaneously, I just look at them, and absorb their presence.
  • Sometimes, I just want to communicate to the world using a living medium as my medium.
  • Sometimes, as in all the time, this is my art.
