Artist Statement

In painting, imagery balanced with mark and medium comprises a visual landscape where meaning is in relation to the experience of unpacking the layers of paint. In my paintings, I’m after a movement from image, to paint, to a felt space where things can be touched and experienced, never limiting the work to what it means. I rely on my surroundings and historical knowledge of painting to create set ups and photo references that hold the plasticity of paint without restricting the paint to an illustration of the overall image.

The paintings I make excavate my past and uncover a felt sensation in a physical space or body. These moments are not inherently linked to the imagery requiring the viewer to slow down and find this meaning not in the naming of things but the way they are painted.
