My paintings deal with the aspects of interaction that capture moment of time through the process of making. These areas reveal the relations between ethereal verses opaque, thick verses thin, atmosphere verses solid, allusion verses reality, exposed verses hidden, etc. As different parts come together, they record the moment between order and chaos containing evidence of time. I am not representing the conflict itself, but instead the residue of the process, the continuous changing of my mind, and the search to achieve the ideal painting. It’s this search of balance, setting on a knife’s edge between the very moment a painting secedes or must be scraped down and begun again, that I find so challenging.
