I am interested in capturing moments often felt more strongly then seen. This idea has taken many forms in painting, drawing, making, and living.
Paintings here include a series of works that strive to articulate a tenuous balance between process and finished artwork. I approach each painting as a dialogue with no preconceived intention. I use a combination of found and invented shapes that reference both geometry and the natural world. I build the compositions in layers, reworking the surface, adding and deleting information. This process continues until I find the moment when the work is resolved, but just barely. I am searching for the place with each painting when the process is still evident, yet there are moments that are unconventionally beautiful.
This idea has lead me to begin a series of smaller works that seek to explore the more narrative quality of abstract painting. I view each work as a fragment or short story, building together into something that is perhaps more.
I am also exploring ideas of noticing space in a series of drawings known as "the space between" These drawings take negative space as their subject matter, and look for deeper interest in the way such shapes converge and overlap.
