When I paint, I tread a path between design and spontaneity; intention and accident. Each painting is its own experiment. I create non-objective abstraction that allows room for interpretation. The subject of my work is the way the paint is applied to the canvas. Yet, sometimes a “meaning” of a painting will strike me after the painting is finished. You are invited to find your own meaning or observe the work without deriving meaning—the enjoyment beyond language can itself be the meaning.
Painting is an expression of personal freedom and resistance against perfectionism, while at the same time, a practice of refining skill and mastery. I am interested in how intuition plays a role in art-making, and I paint with the intent of creating work that captures the interplay of chaos and order. This dynamic is continually fascinating to me.
