My current paintings and drawings are characterized by entire surfaces and forms covered with small incremental marks and/or line-infused “blobs” of paint that are built up over time to evolve into sensuous, dramatic wholes. The paintings, for example, are crooked canvases that advance inches from the wall and are encrusted with limpet like globs of mottled appearance.

Embracing a slow and laborious process, my work investigates the generative potential of repetition, while also addressing how repetition can be non-static and involve an element of play. Juxtaposing excessive simplicity with tender humor, and a pleasure of the absurd, these works can be experienced both from a distance, as whole forms, and on a more intimate level, in constellations of detail, where hundreds of repeated and often eccentric elements are revealed.
