Statement

I am visual artist living and working in Oakland, California.

My paintings are autobiographical fragments framed within the psychological space of a landscape. They employ the specificity of memory and the verisimilitude of the stuff of paint.

Based on introspective investigation into my early life, my paintings begin with snapshots: memories of places, events, temperatures, textures, incidents and people. As I lay material down, the snapshot is supplanted by physical substance. Histories are surfaced over - layer upon layer, yet never completely wiped away.

A new picture can't replace past memory, and so the substance stands in lieu of it. Despite its insistence on some kind of reclamation, it takes on its own characteristics, and reveals the tactile, proprioceptive experience of recollection.
