Artist Statement : How do you describe thoughts, emotions or things and events without using verbal or written words? How can you say volumes with as few words as possible? how do I use the painting medium to make every mark, every brush stroke, every splatter convey volumes but with as much simplicity as possible? I spend a lot of time thinking about how to pare down an idea to its most minimal form yet still say something and then translating that discovery into a painting. My Painting process is a dialog of these emotions and mediums. Building up many layers of translucent washes and dynamic gestural strokes. Evident compositions take shape and evolve from this. Working in short bursts of activity without deliberation or intent to depict, I let my intuited feelings transform the picture plane while staying away from any kind of literal translation. It is my hope that the paintings convey a certain kind of mystery, allowing the viewer the pleasure of their own interpretation.
