“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.
