about my work

My paintings are primarily spatial and chromatic explorations. Formally there is an oscillation between 2 and 3 dimensions, juxtaposition of pattern and field, and ambiguity of viewpoint.

 

The exploration begins with initial gestures that are then reexamined, altered, and sometimes discarded. The under-painting and reworking is never fully contained, preserving a transactional quality and allowing a reading of depth and process.

 

Beyond the formal, there are conceptual notions of cultural reference and temporality. This is attempted through a suggestion of emblematic signifiers, subtle representation of recognizable objects and language.
