For me, painting is a slow and durational method of comprehending and interpreting the world. I build images for that narrow delay between sight and perception—between looking and seeing—when color, texture, pattern, and material are in service to gestures that mesh process with content. These works represent the radiance of biological perception and cognition, language, memory, and the presence and absence of the figure and its attendant identities and energies. Collectively, they are meditations on personal and universal mythologies, acts of transformation, and experiences of discovery and loss in the natural world.
