Currently, my work has been committed to a small amount of characters/forms that have been observed and abstracted to many different degrees. I am curious most, in the naming of 'the thing' we observe and how paint, process and format can shift the way we perceive images and reflect inadequacies in memory and language.
My paintings hedge between abstraction and representation, between memory and willed conjuring. Forms reoccur and change over time, but the mainstay of my visual vocabulary is autobiographical and observational.
Atmosphere, time and the challenge of making paintings that reference past, future, present occupy the bulk of my interest in painting.
I want my paintings to connect synapses, build bridges and to live between brazen self-assuredness and a sort of quietude that asks rather than demands your attention.
