Statement

Recently, I am finding myself compelled to draw cell-towers.  To me they represent individuals; collectively, they are everyone I know and everyone I have yet to meet. The drawings are the remnant of the traditional portrait; fleshy, visual likenesses which have been boiled down to their essence.  The towers are the connection to my world, one that is the result of my reliance on the cell-phone as a communicator.  This has led to a depersonalization of my relationships through my phone’s convenience.  It’s a convenience I’m addicted to, and has created distances that I regret.
