“My painting process is one of construction where I incorporate material processes that are based on chance and the unknown. Dipping fabric into plaster to make hardened compositions as templates to paint on and through my process “clean up” or control. I’m interested in chaos vs control, especially within one’s own life. I also incorporate biographical imagery that has been abstracted by being processed through different photographic / printing techniques. Taken out of context, these images serve as a mysterious symbol to create a new meaning, one that I believe is more truthful or telling.”
