About the Work
My paintings represent a dynamic of movement, growth and intersection of forces. In my painting process, I search for the moment when disparate painted elements cohere and resonate with each other. These painted elements are curvilinear forms which reference and resemble natural elements all around us; veins, roots, and vegetation. Rather than trying to represent only the appearance of these organic elements, I am trying to recreate the way they move and interact with one another, both in reality and in my imagination; for example twining, intersecting, wrapping, growing into, growing out of, merging etc. I want to feel that these organic elements are alive, have a will of their own and have the freedom to enact a drama within an empty painted space.
