Instinctual repetitive actions of layering, cutting, and rolling the paint . . . this laborious process of working becomes hidden with each additional layer of material, obscuring the actions before it, allowing only subtle cues to be seen in the end: hints of color, gentle textures, subtle brushstrokes. I consciously determine the layout of each piece, a simplified look from afar and a complex design from up close. In the end, the goal is not about making a painting, sculpture, or installation the final object, but rather about subtly exposing the process.
