Artist Statement: I liken the synapse/neuron relationship to the human race's dependence on today's digital technology. This technology is now such an essential means to connect, transmit and receive information, that it's hard to get around the idea of living without it. As inspiration for my work, I looked to biological imagery and used the organic elements seen in these images to create patterns of gaps and forms. These were then slightly idealized and re-interpreted to create the gestural works you see in the series.
