Statement

In dream interpretation, rooms of a house symbolize the inner self, while landscapes represent experience. As a painter I explore a landscape that is simultaneously primitive and post-apacolyptic, with primal memories and crude expressions of spirituality accompanying me in my nomadic trek. There are ghosts in the ground, and fossils in the air.


Using the traditional language of landscape, I employ the simple medium of acrylic on
canvas to give curious images a familiar home. Improvisation is important to my process,
as I practice the navigation between routine and the unexpected. I am interested in the color black for both its unforgiving nature and its straight-forwardness. Using an ink-like consistency of acrylic, I mindfully steer the fluid line up and over steep cliffs, trying not to “fall out” of the zen state.
