Artist Statement

I use the surrealist technique Automatic Drawing for my work. No advanced plan is used as the unconscious directs the movement. I attempt to bring myself and the viewer into the instant where the conscious and unconscious mix and the mind begins to make sense of what it sees. It's that moment where our senses are engaged and cognition just begins to categorize and name. I use a calligraphic, graffiti like etching to capture and bring light to this illusive juncture. These moments are flowing, organic and quickly dissipate, which presents itself in the look of decay and entropy. Layers and layers of paint are used to arrive at this point.
