Artist Statement February 2016
Painting has to operate on multiple layers of consciousness. What your eye sees your mind understands both consciously and unconsciously. Making art is always both a formal and intuitive process. The underpinnings are experience in the medium, uncertainty of how the painting will progress and what initial parameters, if any, I’ve set myself and what is going on in my life: what I’m thinking, experiencing, remembering, reacting to and feeling.
