My work deals with the relationship between the subconscious and physical space. It is about the emotional and reactive navigation of the canvas. My process relies on seeing and feeling the signs before me that lead to the next move, and building a composition that is primarily based upon a lyrical approach to abstraction.
My oil paintings are engineered with the process of lavish mark making, natural gesture, and shape integration, sustained within a unique abstract visual language. The forms derive from a primal and unconscious recognition of my surroundings, digesting and transferring this complexity into a cascade of recognizable but irrational space. This system of abstraction mostly constructs itself through my intuitive actions, combined with an innate awareness of spatial relationships.
When examining the surface of the oil paint, channels of rich color intermingle with indefinite organic forms. As the layers and processes build on one another, the composition amplifies into an atmosphere where a sense of motion encounters a fragmented system of shapes. Together these elements simultaneously interact with the space, creating tension in some areas, and solving it in others.
