Using a combination of sketches and collages for visual reference, I quickly lay down imagery and forms in paint in order to preserve a fleeting thought or idea I have about a subject. This impulsive working process allows me to exploit accidents and misinterpretations, with the intent of generating new meaning for familiar subjects and narratives.
I combine line, color and fragments of found and fabricated imagery to produce personally significant and symbolic themes. I am interested in the moods that punctuate emotional life - amused, anxious and contemplative- as well as other nuances of thought, uncertainty and feeling. I re-create these tensions in my paintings, altering common subject matter to accentuate peculiarities.
