My focus is on the beauty and enigma of light and color.
I target the act of perception and the psychological responses to light and color that can open to the viewer. I’m interested in color phenomena; the ability for color relationships to produce phantom colors in addition to the actual paint surface. (film color)
My supports are usually translucent to allow light to pass through the paint surface and create an interaction with the changing light in the room.
Working with "accidental colors" captured from nature and whatever surrounds me, I employ rigor and absurdity in equal measure.
I crave beauty and I work to reduce the visual to utter simplicity.
As nothing is permanent and our ideas can change as we continue to explore and grow… below is an addendum to my artist statement:
The idea of not interfering with the natural course of things and allowing them to proceed as they would by themselves is my working method. The paint, tools and my hand interacting. Creating art without forcing, arriving at meaning without having looked for it. It is through a letting go of intention and balancing that with a degree of reflection that the work comes to be.
