I am interested in the ongoing layering of life, ideas, history, personal stories, and mythologies. My visual conversation is like poetry, a whispered interval between the past and tomorrow, subtracting and adding, losing one thing but gaining something new.
My images, while abstract, reference specific places, events, memories, moments in a day, or a road taken. It isn’t the literal I wish to find in my paintings but the idea or feeling of the experience of some place or time.
Constructing the paintings involves catharsis, seeking a balance and finding a concrete language for an idea that may be very fleeting – like holding fog in a crystal bowl.
