Artist Statement Submitted 2017

As an artist I make paintings that exist in the sliver of space between abstraction and representation. I look to the lived daily experience of the world coupled with the artifacts of the past. My work compresses time into the surface and touch of painting, that old technology. Increasingly flora, fauna, and natural phenomenon hold my attention as I wrestle with this imagery within my paintings. Birds, plants, flowers, stones, and fires dissolve into the light of the digital screen and the glowing tablet. There is something exquisitely profound about the evanescent light of the screen burning the image of a delicate flower into one’s mind. Light, flowers, songbirds, and technology are here and also fade away. These bits of day-to-day life, seen through the glow of the digital screen are the genesis of my work.
