ARTIST STATEMENT: Over time, I’ve come to understand the thread that binds my work is thinking through material. In recent oil and watercolor paintings from the Constellation series, fields of luminous color merge with delicate patterns of stars and webs to depict a floating sensorial space. Fluid paint, hand and breath work in tandem to serve as a meditation on the passage of time. In my studio, to recast a mantra, “out of paint grows a flower.” Ideas begin first with watercolor on paper where flows of liquid paint force spontaneous decisions and quick moves. Gravity helps, too, where resulting colored starbursts record gesture stopped. Working with oil is a slower process. Image is revealed by layering, erasing, and rebuilding. The atmospheric grounds of the paintings generate a denser more immersive space where visual dualities coexist: delicate line/hovering mass, stillness/gesture, cool blue/warm red transforms the physical to describe the ephemeral. In the end, I make paintings I want to look at. To shift the border from what is known to a kind of gossamer state of being.
