Fascinated by how the brain reconfigures our world into something we can comprehend and build on, I attempt translate the complexity of our ever evolving cultural matrix by exploring internal conversations through abstract imagery. Using a personal vocabulary, gesture, and combined techniques of painting, drawing and printmaking.
My work is part planned, part spontaneous. Relating the need for connection through collision of form and line, but the inherent singularity remains. Each piece holds within it the possibility of change. Often the original intent is totally obliterated by the paintings end. It has to stand on its own, have a voice. I want to look at a piece after completing it, be drawn into it, and wonder if I had anything to do with it at all.
