Artist's Statement

As a painter my focus is process and color. My surfaces reveal an obsession with perfection and imperfection and reference architecture or sculpture that has been flattened or compressed.

As an artist I am drawn to the beauty of erosion: the physical deterioration and wearing away of forms over time through the action of nature’s hand. I mimic this beauty of erosion in my paintings, which are made up of as many as forty layers of pigment that I reveal by sanding, scraping, and bruising the painting’s surface in a manner that simulates both decay and the passage of time.

My approach to painting is personal and reflective. The result is a private record, not unlike a journal. I always title my paintings by the date and time when they’re completed, alluding to the concept of documentation.
