My paintings range from compressed lines of color to geometric and abstract eruptions. I synthesize color, sound, and texture to create “digitized” or “dissolved” landscapes, using a specific palette sampled from a variety of natural sources in the landscape/environment, particularly flora: reflections in water, storm clouds, leaves, sugar cane, dead foliage, flowers, lichens, soil. I blend the colors on-site and then take the samples into the studio, where I mix larger quantities of matched colors. This is my primary palette. Working in a variety of mediums and processes, I utilize many different techniques to apply paint to the surfaces of my canvases.
