Artist Statement Making art is a journey to understand the world, both materially, and conceptually, through the observance of nature, form, and color. My paintings develop from an abstract vocabulary inspired by the properties of water, fields, and their boundaries.
I work to create a natural rhythm as a means to capture the flow of spontaneous activity. Striving to feel and reflect nature’s underlying forces as witnessed by the human spirit.
In my work, the analysis takes place on the surface of the painting. Layers are continuously reformulated by adding and removing material. My surfaces are candidly penetrated revealing consequences, which become embedded to varying degrees in the final form. I find this process akin to natural forces upon the physical world.
It’s my approach to visual discovery.
