ARTIST STATEMENT: My paintings use movement and light to explore space and form. They skirt the line between abstraction and representation. They are ambiguous, yet feel recognizable, familiar or iconic. By hinting at the identifiable yet remaining elusive, they use abstraction to be suggestive and to engage the viewer's imagination. I paint with a squeegee and unearth images by removing layers of paint to expose what is beneath. The final form is often revealed through one single gesture. This process is physical, improvisational and playful. I erase entire paintings frequently and chance plays a large part in each piece. Pushing around layers of transparent colors, I collaborate with the natural properties of the paint to create spaces, forms and moments of light that could have never been planned.
