In these drawings, paintings and wall installations I obsessively render a continuous line to create complex, intertwined, tubular forms. As I draw, I consider the effect of how transmitting fluids and gases, along with pressure and gravity would influence these imagined forms. The forms are layered and loosely follow aspects of linear perspective to become networks that reference the vast and intricate transportation, processing and refining systems of oil, natural gas and water as seen in our industrial landscape.
