I make paintings on canvas and panels using oil bars and oil paint, wax, spray paint, dry pigments, brushes and rags. I often invent processes that require touching the surface with my hands. As I work, the imagery that develops often shifts back and forth between the figurative and abstraction.
As I construct surfaces that contrast repetitive, obsessive, time-consuming procedures with abrupt, accidental moments, I create a dialogue between my will and intention and that which is beyond my control, maybe even beyond my comprehension. I'm looking for something hidden in plain sight.
