Artist's Statement

-I have been influenced by satellite and archipelago like relationships where identities in terms of bracketing shift in relation to indebtedness.
-Appearance is the result of leaks and woven modal states that develop during my forensic-like approach to painting. In recovering a painting, the recognition of what props up or disrupts registration, functions to what is lost as its logo and shadow
-The problem is a paradox of presentation and access, of exacerbation and eclipse. Within the guise of emblem-like formats, I am interested in the analogies and gaps in perception when a site is splayed, treated, substituted and reconvened under the pretense of wholeness and usefulness.
-I am interested in the play within approach, scanning and sorting. This deferred linking is meant to celebrate the provisional although with a backward glance towards the irrevocable and inevitable
