Artist Statement Submitted 2019
I am primarily a painter, although my work on both canvas and paper typically includes mixed media and collage, elements that extend the surfaces outward, into the viewer’s space. Oil paint is the core, but my overall process is intensely constructive. Materials accrete into rich textures and luminous, atmospheric layers of complex colors and marks. Lively, vivid paint surfaces, in conjunction with collage and found objects, generate detailed spatial effects, which often evoke the complicated, history-encrusted surfaces of old buildings. Poetic support for such effects may come from archaeology, the religious iconography of my upbringing, or fragments of writing.
