In my work I am searching for that liminal space between abstraction and representation. A hands-on painting process is the primary means by which my work is generated as opposed to a more conceptual approach. This allows for endless surprises and unexpected possibilities. Working with many different methods and tools, I drip, sprinkle, blur, and scratch using mix media including acrylic, oil pastel, chalk, and coffee grounds. Chance and control become a constant dynamic where the unintended can generate so much chaos that it triggers a primal rush to establish order. In this endless loop there is no final product but rather a surface that bears witness to the inherent contradictions in the process itself.
