A history of images
A synthetic cumulative construction
A series of studies for a larger work about something else entirely

The studio as a locus of life and death energy.
The studio as ever-unfinished environment.
The studio as magnet for things.
The studio as container of failure and potential.
The studio as mirror, reflection, projection.

Object studies of formation and synthesis.
Ad paintings of memory, nostalgia, sales and purchase.
Flyers and advert drawings of information abundance, obscure data, trivia.
Made marks. Collected Imagery. Editing. The inanimate. The time-based.
Walls of studies. A moving image. A cyclic sound.
