About the Work
My paintings [attempt to] 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. I wouldn’t say I’m trying to represent those organic elements, rather I am trying to recreate the way that organic elements move and interact with one another; for example twining, intersecting, wrapping, growing into, etc. In that way, it sometimes feels that the lines are alive, have a will of their own and are enacting a drama within an empty painted space.
