ARTIST STATEMENT

“The less there is to look at the more important it is that we look at it closely and carefully.” –Kirk Varnedoe
Inspired by the atmosphere. Simple and complex:
I am fascinated by space: actual, personal, psychological, and how real, mental and emotion interruptions pierce or glide through space (clouds, utility lines, trees, thoughts),
I obscure boundaries between binaries; natural/man-made line and form, interior/exterior environments, to symbolize internal and external changes in ourselves as we navigate through our ever-changing surroundings. In recent years, my paintings have become meditative; spaces in which to reflect on the simultaneous simplicity and complexity of this flow of being.
