Artist Statement

For years I have worked in several mediums simultaneously. Each has informed the other. Specifically as it relates to painting, I have been investigating how color, form, and the geography of space can be both an attraction and deterrent.Paint is layered up, removed, and then covered up again. Sometimes a razor blade, belt sander, or dremel is used. Raw pigment, binder, silt, random colors, are applied with dried up brushes, putty knife, stick. The physicality and process plays an important role.I am interested in the process of undoing–– making paintings that border on being seemingly unresolved. Perhaps if one looked long enough, the painting would shift slightly, fall apart or tighten up. I like awkward and clumsy, as it provides multiple fulcrums and visual pathways to contemplate the whole and details simultaneously, much like our thought patterns. As I make the works, there are stages of curiosity, flippancy, deliberateness, reverence, preciousness, attachment, surprise, willingness, boredom, realization, chaos, forgetfulness, impetuousness, and all other variations. It could all be meaningless, disparate, or inexplicable.At some point there is a declaration of doneness. Albeit for just a moment, or longer, as all things are impermanent, so no use trying to control that.
