Combining paint and diverse materials including paper, photos and fabric has augmented my recent work, producing abstract and physical visual landscapes with an attention to layered images. Many pieces derive from an overlay of organic and manufactured scraps, while others emphasize a more painterly and tactile terrain.
I am drawn to mysterious, mystical forms and potent contrasts of color. Taking a sensual and meditative approach to my work, my imagery develops out of the foundation of painterly abstraction and form. The prominence of layered and alternating surfaces also suggests unknown depths or images only partially visible to the naked eye.
For me and for my practice, this connects to a sense that the world is not completely “knowable,” that any truth is partial, and what seems tangible will slip from our grasp.
