My paintings are about isolation and transformation. The imagery in my work consists of glyphs, abstracted plants, animals, and figures that inhabit a “landscape” made up of simple geometric patterns. This primitive geometry serves as a loose framework to organize, join, and simultaneously isolate the various subjects in the paintings.
Rich textures and a subtle meditative light quality are created through the process of working and reworking the surface. The tension between the quiet geometry and the active surface complexity evokes a meditative state that floats between the concrete and the temporal.
