must constantly remind myself, as an artist, my role is to build
psychological bridges linking together feelings and shared human
experiences. My use of fragmentation is symbolic of chaos or of
partial objects and blunted feelings. These bridges must support
my effort to express my inner thoughts and feelings about the human
spirit. The goal is to achieve a balance between technology and
an esthetic domain to make a meaningful artistic statement.
