My approach to painting is conceptual. Each piece begins with an aspect of the human condition. Through the delicate manipulation of material, I allow the paint to react with itself and other mediums to create chance images. These images are a result of altering the natural characteristics of the paint by introducing unconventional materials such as water, acetone, salt, or rubbing alcohol. Utilizing the process of layering, I develop each work slowly. Every tier is added and subtracted to mirror the layers that we have as humans. The beauty of the finished work is achieved through the combination of each layer’s complexities and intricacies.
