About the Work
My studio practice is a hybrid of oil painting and papermaking with installation and printmaking serving as additional “brushes. I have been told that the work serves flavors of Hilma af Klint and Francis Bacon. Identifying as a mind’s-eye whisperer, I represent gold in the wounds of unobserved spaces. Why unobserved? We cannot “see” because we look out, when we should be looking in and we are so easily distracted.
With an eye on noticings across space and time, I am in love with the world and weave luminous bundles of amazement out of life’s mysterious fragments, to capture and preserve the explosive stillness of epic moments. You can find me escaping the constraints of the explainable. This quantum soup of entanglement is abundant and chronicles the tug-of-war between the known and the unknown.
My artworks are slow, love letters that transport us along the lifeline of our desires, through veils of experience and behind our own scenes. Speaking in the visual language of the subconscious, my work invites you to stay awhile.
Such ethereal works yearn for a solid, foundation. With a nod to the ancestors, the paintings begin with a mix of oils, linen, copper nails and hand made paper.
