Statement

 

Born: May 9, 1975; Baltimore, Maryland

Residence: Ithaca, New York

 

My painting comes from process-driven use of non-traditional tools and methods of application. I'm interested in paint as a material versus a means to an image or picture. My work relates to natural processes, forces and replication across a range of materials. 

For these pieces, I work with texture in layers to develop organic patterns that produce a structured painting. Relying on the features of previous solid layers of paint, I affect how the following fluid layer reacts to the surface. This method creates synergy between the painting and me, making it in part self-originating. By allowing the life of the material to be established, then responding, instead of imposing my vision, a natural composition occurs and the painting is realized.
