I celebrate paint and nature’s unpredictability. These paintings on yupo paper attest to my love of the medium and I use them to experiment, to discover ways to make a mark of my own. I use a variety of techniques such as glazing, additive and reductive mark making, drips, splatter, and airbrush to create lush, dense surfaces. Landscape, foliage or water inform the shapes, but the marks frenetic energy hint at something wild and mysterious beneath. These works decry an indifferent, impervious, insensitive natural world and remind us of our rare, unique place in the universe.
