Artist's Statement

In my relief paintings I aim to create a balanced vocabulary of nonfigurative shapes. Interwoven into arrangements, the shapes relate to each other by resting together, blurring together, and meeting at points of tension. The ambiguity and nuance in the likenesses of the forms allows both geometric and organic shapes to share the same space and provoke a contradictory feeling of harmony and friction. Contradiction is also apparent in the technique and method used to create my reliefs. Each shape in relief is roughly applied with a pallet knife. I then use an industrial sander to sand the reliefs smooth in order to create a surface that appears delicate and shallow. By sanding I am able to blend shapes together, blur edges, remove forms altogether, and change the appearance of the material in different degrees.
