STATEMENT OF WORK

My paintings are representations, but they are not always representational.
They are abstractions, but they are not always abstract.
They document my everyday, sometimes in focus and sometimes unrecognizable.
A wide range of images, from Pop/fashion media, self-observed landscape, nature morte are filtered through a sieve of formalism. Murky worlds emerge.
Figure and ground are a starting point. Diffuse color or stark white is the ground.
Shapes emerge slowly on top, thickly painted. Tension is desired. Transformation is the goal. Transformation is from the everyday to something else, something ethereal yet still graphically concrete as I try to make sense of the body in the universe. The bodies are always present but often unseen.
Redon said he wanted the "logic of the visible at the service of the invisible,"
desiring to interpret the poetic through material (paint)
