This is one of a new series of self portraits.  They are pyrographs or burn drawings, on paper with paper embedded into the work.

In a series of self portraits I’m drawing further on the relationship between the environment and the body. I see relationships emerging between the infinite nature of digital information and the finite world, between the constant sense of making and remaking of oneself. There is something about the eternally shifting relationship between order and chaos and the struggle to reach a point of equilibrium.
