Artist Statement

Life is a constant tension between chaos and order, moments of control in the midst of what cannot be controlled. Our relationships and aspirations get out of alignment. How do we bring any of it into focus? What matters? What can I control? As a painter, I find the tension between what I can control and what I cannot in the media and in the work. I work in transparent layers and watch them take form slowly. Loose structure is realized with formal elements, some with crisp lines. These shapes are about reintegrating and creating order. They say, "This part is going to be clear. This part is in focus." Both the structured and the unstructured bring transformation to things in life. As I work, there is a "re-purposing" of loss and chaos into transcendence. Sound is especially important as well, considering, "what does sound look like?" How do sounds provide rhythm, another form of order.
I do not always intend to paint spiritual pieces, but in the process of working, the spiritual comes out. My goal is to transcend the literal, and for the meditative quality I find in the process to be experienced by the viewer as well.
