My work explores the place of "not knowing." The process is an intuitive dialogue between the random and the deliberate that allows a relationship to develop between intent and accident. Each piece evolves as play between translucent and opaque layers of paint, as I draw, layer, cover up, sand and scrape. The paintings take on a life of their own, revealing imagery that evokes a visceral response.
The "Inside Matters" series unfolded in response to an image that emerged in the process of painting. The recognizable contours of a vessel led me to explore this form. The contents of the vessels remain hidden, imbuing them with a mysterious, suggestive potency, like the painting process itself.
