Artist's Statement

I work between painting and animation. I use each medium to propel the other in sort of a perpetual motion, creativity machine. Where what I do in painting is then recorded by video and transformed by time and narration. This transformed painting then feeds back into my still painting and gives me courage try some other things out which are then filmed and continue the process. In this way a new logic and energy begins to form between the two. This is then repeated over and over until a resolution occurs.
