My work is informed by both contemporary and modernist painting. I use acrylic and oil paint as well as various collage materials on paper, panel and canvas. I explore pattern and repetition, not for the sake of pattern and repetition but for the dream-like experience it offers me.

 

Over time, visual information accrues in my work. My meditative process sets up spatial relationships, where color vibrations emerge. Slowly and over time, the overall begins to arrive from all the sweet spots along the way.

 

The work holds me in a kind of intimate conversation. The skewed nature of the geometry dips into the awkward and then it becomes a more complex space of relationships. My focus in that territory is one of attention. Each piece develops over time in the making and in the seeing.

 

The individual clarity, which results from the making of each painting, is surprisingly factual.
