ARTIST STATEMENT: The current body of work, which I have been developing for about three years, includes paintings which draw from various types of patterns and graphic imagery to create spaces that are colorful and active. These abstract paintings incorporate acrylic and oil paint, and occasionally I will also draw directly onto the canvas. The paintings start with a simple wash of color, then use disparate, often decorative elements to develop an environment that can be foggy and undefined but still calls to mind the ideas of growth and decay; a beautiful and decorative, yet vaguely threatening domain. A recurring image in my recent work is the window, representing escapes to other places, both inside and outside. In some works the viewer is looking from the inside out, or else the reverse. However, while the window is a boundary, often the windows in my works are floating, having no firm grounding. Some of these views are uplifting and dreamy, others more grim and foreboding.
