Artist's Statement

My new work involves the creation of urban based socio-political, geographic, architectural paintings. In 2006, I began working with polymers submersed in pigment, pencil markers, acrylic paint. These materials have become a prominent feature of my new work. I am dissecting fragmenting and rearranging shapes and forms derived from architecture of the bay Area, creating a sense of new environments. Using Bay Area geographic form derived from intuitive deconstruction and reconstruction of architecture into a new field of perspective. I have always been formally involved with nature in the Bay Area, now my obsession has grown, I feel connected to the nature that surrounds us but what contains us. What has been happening in the world for the last decade globally has shaped my perception of reality and how I interpret and conceive it? I am attempting to combine these observations to create a compilation of connective awareness.
