artist statement

Color is life.

I express myself in an abstract way.

This for me is the purest pursuit of reality.

I am fascinated with the paradoxical juxtaposition of intermediated digital imagery with personally evocative paint handling.

I scan images in a copier while moving them, producing laser jet prints I transfer directly into the paint surface, which I further combine with a variety of multimedia mark making and direct gestural painting.

This enables me to mash up and sample different patterns, forms, shapes, colors, and contexts. I aim for a paradox of the intricate and the broadly gestural; the flat, and the infinite.

I want to be lost and yet be found. I consider myself defeated if I too easily know where it is I want to go.

I believe in the elusive, the poetic, in ecstasy and in joy.
