In a contemporary world that is characterized by fast-moving, ironic and easy images, my work asks for a sustained and attentive approach on the part of the viewer. The patient viewer is rewarded by a depth and complexity of experience that is authentic and unique. My paintings are both object and image, and ask the viewer to engage in a bodily way with the physicality of the surfaces they encounter.
Beyond the visual references of shape and colour to various ecosystems, my process and approach invoke the undisciplined and unintentioned phenomenon of geological, meteorological, and biological systems. Like clouds, the paintings are the natural outcome of an organic process devoid of the artificiality of external intent. Free from the confines of judgement or convention, each mark accumulates as an aggregate of natural residues into a work that is its own living system.
