Artist Statement

I am compulsively drawn to visual events and the conscious impulse “to see.” This work is the result of my experimentation with the thresholds of sight in a compressed, competitive environment of distractions. Shapes and forms that are flattened, folded, nostalgic, artificially organic, architectural, or teasingly animate, float in an equally undefined space. Here color confronts and enables distraction, sometimes reverses field, and often echoes a split context. Color grids and color grinds with a palette that is as flat and thickly pasted as the whitewashed mineral-coated plastic bottles in the shower or those salted and adrift at sea. With color often made false by market testing and blanched by the glare of social contradiction it reminds that all dialogues where ever they come from can bring new insights and meanings.
