Forms represent the organization of ideas. Ideas that hold shapes and transfer meaning from what we see to how we think. I'm interested in found form, what has composition without a plan. The intent of the physical world is not organization but recomposition. Painting is an immediate artform and the results are apparent. It can be used to trigger unintended, but no less interesting results. What I'm searching for are the forms born from apparent results without interpretation. I'm looking at trees. I'm looking at the geological landscape. I'm looking at the evolution of the shape of humans and their animal heritage. These forms don't represent an idea other the continuance of their form as an idea. Because of our inheritance I am able to consider these ideas. I am able form them with our without organization through the ancient and progressive discipline of Painting.
