statement 2013

To paint these things, I pick out moments where I am curious about an encounter-- an abutment of objects or figures and space-- and saturate it with a visual emotionality that can be correlated with singular moments in memory. Once I have found the right moment, the material qualities of the paint-- how liquid and malleable it is and which colors I give myself permission to use, command my attention. I use a battery of mark-making techniques. Varying viscosities, transparencies and visual puzzles suggest, seduce, and tell you something like the truth.
