Looking around and seeing pretty much everything we-well-intentioned-humans touch, tends to somehow turn out wrong. I have been noticing what I call “accidental monsters” in humanity’s ventures. Great ideas have a way of solving one or two problems, but then starting new sets of unexpected challenges.

This body of work starts out as small observations in my sketchbook. This is where these doodles happen, and then they get re-imagined at another scale or in other pairings on these panels.

“If Necessity is the Mother of Invention, Then is Technology the Father of Dependence?”

I have noticed a “giving over” of our memory, intellect and wisdom to technology. Telephone numbers, conversations, decisions and more seem to be handed over to our devices. Our culture is being deformed by technology. What happens when technology let’s us down?

One question I have carried with me for around thirty years now is “what will remain of this society” when it is found later? will all that remains is the most dense material we produced? porcelain toilets? fire hydrants? dams? Without electricity will this current culture become invisible? Can humanity's resourcefulness save it from itself?

If you are interested in discussing any of the pieces feel free to contact me for a visit and an opportunity to discuss your interests. Some of the works are no longer available as an original, but I have an affiliate company that will provide you with a way to order prints in various sizes and materials. You can order these as canvases or framed & matted solutions.
