My work explores the transitory and emotional aspects of urban and rural landscapes in the Northeast United States. I am particularly drawn
to the decaying residential and industrial areas of Brooklyn, the sprawling pre-fab buildings of Upstate New York, and other areas marred by
poverty, poor urban planning and changing economies. Exploring fluctuating states of entropy and growth, the drawings themselves teeter on
the edge of collapse; lines accumulate on the brink of abstraction. Composed from photographic references, memory, news articles and the
Internet, each work is as intricate as it is haphazard. Drafted using technical pens and tinted with watercolor, the finished works effuse a magical
realism; evoking both the romanticism of the Hudson River School and the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, an aesthetic centered on the
acceptance of transience.
