Artist Statement

     As a species our history is preserved through the collective human consciousness; our bodies vessels for the past and the present, knowledge, memory, legends and thought.  It is this inherited past that serves as the eternal and indestructible foundation of our selves; that whisper at the back of the brain that instinctively reconciles the individual with his or her place in time, history, and humanity. Memories are often incomplete, obscured, and fabricated, constantly changing in the reflection of the present.   monuments to the manipulated, revered, invented, and ingrained histories that define us as a species, a culture, and as individuals.
