“In the analog television signal, images are built up with scan-lines.  The space between those lines is called the vertical interval.  Information can be embedded between the scan-lines that make up an image, either invisible or decoded and visible.  To me, these works exist in this conceptual space, as images, motion, and meaning embedded within the lines, textures, and colors.  So much of my creative work is done at 24, 30, 60 frames a second.  These paintings try to hold that fraction of a second and make it physical—to take something that is fleeting and make it real.  The video sculptures do the same thing by revealing atmosphere, physicality, and motion, once hidden in the vertical interval.”
