Current Paintings

It begins with the need to understand and examine the unknown. In my search questions and ideas arise: the state of the world, mass production, homogenization of culture, and mass media- over stimulation. At this time, it seems all that surrounds us is in hyper drive and focused on instant gratification. Painting for me is a gentle revolt against this state, a process not just a product- an attempt to slow the mind, delay the gaze, illuminate new ideas, and create an untold story that varies from one person to the next. Guiding the mind into a meditative state not often experienced in daily life, the paintings speak of an awe for the world. This series of paintings encapsulates my exploration of these questions and ideas through the study of landscape and nature. It is also a study in the interactions of varying mediums and surfaces. I apply ink, watercolor, gouache, and acrylic on paper, raw canvas and wood by hand, brush, drip and spray. The layering and interaction of different materials allows me to experiment with depth and the push-pull of foreground and background- helping me expand the definition of landscape calm the mind, tell a story, create new experiences and ideas. Working with the mediums in a loose, fluid manner allows the paint on the surface to partially dictate the direction of the artwork- the medium is a guide. This gives the pieces a certain spontaneity, a lack of total control that keeps them alive. This liveliness and organic unfolding emulates the underlying inspiration for these works - nature and creation.
