My work explores and utilizes the idea of unresolved and unhinged spatial tensions. In the space of my paintings, areas of opaque impasto contrast areas of thin transparency and create intermittent motion, sometimes erratic, sometimes rhythmic.
Simultaneously, irregular geometries suggest shifting figures and knotted, tangled forms. To achieve these effects, I often use squeegees and chunky brush marks as well as homemade brushes, wide enough to make marks that stretch across the whole canvas. Colors tend toward the high key and the grounds are extremely smooth, allowing for glowing, stained-glass tones when transparent colors are scraped and rubbed across the surface.
