Figurative images are recurrent in my work. More recently, I have been concerned with landscape, in particular, imaginary cross-sections of land forms. These images speak of subterranean strata prone to disruption and excavation. All my work evolves through iterative drawing which manifests a characteristic layered graphic line and mark making.
My fascination with artistic practice is as much about making images and broadening my dexterity in combining the syntax of painting and drawing as it is about holding the paradox of steadying myself enough to think clearly while surrendering to an artistic process that is neither linear nor predictable.
This process is a curious space that must destabilize; a sweet spot of vulnerability and exhilaration which sometimes yields glimpses of insight that defy neat, linguistic translation. It’s a wild beast, I tell you, but that somehow reminds me of my humanity.
