Biography          CV          Statement          Recent Press

“In my paintings, accidents shift relationships and produce unexpected proximities and disruptions. The act of painting and repainting requires a period of non-linear, improvisational, and generative adjustments, mirroring the way history evolves through the accidents of actions and reactions. Fundamental to my process is a desire to create unexpected coherence in irregular and uncertain systems and to reveal the ways the past infiltrates the present.”

“I think I have some sort of neural gravitation to creating. It’s a cliché, but when I create, I feel most human, purposeful, alive, and part of the world.”

“I’m interested in how a cycle of construction, accumulation, rupture, and repair creates a system. As I work, I follow detours and choose contingencies within a syntax of stripes, planes, paint drips, abrasions, and stains, and trompe l’oeil supports that act like small prosthetics within the pictorial space. Each painting materializes out of a friction between intention and coincidence, much like the daily processing and deciphering required to be in the world.”

“In my paintings, I accumulate and connect visual fragments that don’t necessarily go together. My process requires getting stuck and then finding a way around or through.
