Artist Statement

I make images that suggest tectonic and atmospheric events, turbulence, eruptions and upheavals: parallels to events we are surprised to witness in our physical world. In reaction to fleetingness and uncertainty, we seek constants, definition and control. With a similar impulse, I use simple depictive techniques (linear and planar geometry; measuring and marking; tracing; laser-cutting) to examine dissolutions and distortions of form in my work. This is a layered process that at first embraces fluidity, chance and responsivity; and then shifts to an analytic, editorial mode. In this way I seek to make images that are only just resolved, and that retain tensions between these disparate layers and elements. 

I’m deeply interested in pushing a material toward its limits, toward revealing its unanticipated and unique qualities. I remain compelled by painting and drawing because they exist at an intersection between intellectual pursuit and physical endeavor. It isn’t just a matter of planning and executing, but a process of recognizing and allowing for the strengths and faults of an imprecise set of materials and movements.
