I maintain an interest in exploring the relationship between painting, drawing, and printmaking within my practice. By combining these mediums I begin to combine the three and in return it becomes reminiscent of urban noise. The pieces that are being created posses various tensions, such as man versus machine, labored craft versus gestural, and abstraction versus representation. Through the combination of various mediums I am placing my energy outside of the body and onto a surface that relates to a chaotic mentality. When creating these works I am engaged in the physicality and the material process of painting, drawing, and printmaking. I spread around my energy, striving to find the balance within the work. The work itself is composed of multiple layers and processes; some layers are completely obliterated and destroyed, leaving only a remnant.
