ARTIST STATEMENT

 

My work focuses on the issue of containment – the human desire for the safety of enclosure and structure vs. the terror of possible entrapment. My paintings depict an array of containers - grids, buildings, eggs, spheres, circles and squares and suggest that a container can protect, imprison or do both.

I find that my work often veers back and forth between competing dualities – abstraction vs. photorealism, loose vs. tight, contained vs. unrestrained, geometric vs. biomorphic shapes, painting vs. drawing, whimsical vs. serious, square vs. circle, creation vs. destruction. My most recent body of work “The Tension of Opposites’ is an ongoing  exploration of these and other dualities that creep into my paintings.

 

 

Painting, for me, is a slow gradual emergence of form into space. Using palette knives, nails, combs, rags -I push, pull, dig and scrape - searching for layers underneath as  I continue to add more paint on top of layers. This way of working always allows me to make surprising discoveries, which for me is an essential part of the painting process. My paintings emerge gradually and only after much struggle, not unlike the way a person’s sense of self emerges itself over the course of a lifetime.
