"If you look at one thing thoroughly enough it becomes evident that it is connected to everything. This "whole" notion is woven in my work somehow by a hand of mine that I can not grasp. It is this surprising connectedness that lures me to continue exploring. Often there is a re-cognition of my art by diverse disciplines at diverse depths. Mathematicians, poets, chemists, indigenous elders, physicists, zen masters, linguists, anthropologists have engaged my work and helped to inform it."
