The word "photography" was created from the Greek roots φωτός (phōtos), genitive of φῶς (phōs), "light" and γραφή (graphé) "representation by means of lines" or "drawing", together meaning "drawing with light".

"The artwork represents a striving to reconcile the inner world of instinct and emotions, with an external world that is both beautiful and hostile in its natural grandeur. It is an attempt to map the place where these worlds intersect. The paintings are an investigation of the struggle between a variety of human impulses: impulses that are as necessary as they are contradictory, and which therefore constantly undermine our psychic and social coherence even as they endow us with vitality, soul, and life." - Artist’s Statement
