I want painting to be like a game. I paint and I play games, and in my studio work I play around the borders of both to see what lies between. I use a variety of media to create paintings that are, through their meandering exploration of form and space, suggestive of an alternate world. Given that I am working along the vector of “play,” these alternate spaces take on the nature of the maps and landscapes of games I have experienced, creating imagery that is reflective of the format of such games and also functions as a template for compositional and narrative improvisation.
