My recent work is made up of layers. Layers of text, abstracted space, pattern, and concrete subject matter. I wish to give the viewer an array of visual possibilities. It is important to me to use various styles of mark making, collage, paint application and printmaking. I incorporate bits and pieces of ephemera that speak to me.
With my paintings, I try to make sense of what I don’t understand. The universe, the ocean and weather are reoccurring themes. I give poetic insight into the world’s inner workings. Boats become vessels for exploration and direction. Ladders lead us on into change and insight. I pair these symbols with pattern and abstraction, hoping to allow the viewer their own interpretation and reaction.
