Recently, during a very difficult time in my life, I was overwhelmed by an outpouring
of kindness, love, and support. The Fingerprint series is my homage to humanity,
giving credence to those dear individuals, as well as to the new relationships that
I develop. In very basic terms, I fingerprint those that are close to me; I scan the print, enlarge it in order to work from it, then turn the structure of the print itself into an abstracted, psychological, emotional por trait. I focus painstaking, obsessive attention into constructing a non-representational image that is based on the fingerprint. Repetitive, overlapping, and
concentric lines that are carried out with methodical precision and micro-decision making is my means of attempting to explain a life story; the DNA of my work.
