Artist Statement

My work is born of the land and its forms macro and micro. As a child I preferred the company of trees—neighborhood games of hide and seek were an opportunity to be consumed by the forest, lost in the wonder of an unfurling fern or the grisly horror of a rotting animal carcass.
At my core, I am a painter though my materials and methods vary. My process oscillates between the algorithmic and the stochastic. I often utilize an underlying set of rules to initiate a work; however, resolution of a piece is intuitive and emergent from exploitation of the physical properties of the material.
Complex color and vibratory color relationships are also primary concerns. I like to think of the parallels between color and music, light waves and sound waves…for me, there is a perceptible “snap” when the color relationships in a work are resolved.
I think of my work as existing in the liminal space between waking and dreaming. Liminality, a threshold between two conditions or states of being, is an important idea to me as I wrestle with the reconciliation of binaries. Motifs of mountain, water and cloud are characters for my exploration of Form/Formlessness, Time/Timelessness, Stasis/Flux.

Mind Forms Series: Inspired by Anonymous Tantric Meditation Paintings
A very good friend gave me a copy of Franck Andre Jamme's book Tantra Song. Tantric spiritual practitioners in contemporary Rajasthan India use the anonymous paintings in this book as focal points for private meditation. These vibratory works resonated deeply with me and I wished to create such simple but powerful works.
I began a series loosely inspired by these paintings and the body of work continues to evolve and grow. The pieces range from the very simple to the complex. The richly pigmented flashé vinyl paint has a lush matte finish and compares with oil paint in its capacity to be transparent or opaque.
The image is emergent from the process of building up a dense ground. A heightened awareness of the application of richly pigmented paint to the highly absorbent Rives BFK printmaking paper surface is the basis for my meditation and the driving force behind my mark-making.
