"I have been thinking a lot about what it is to make a painting in these times, and how I can add to this dialogue that has been going on for centuries. The boundaries of painting excite me; pigments, mediums, and surface. And within these limits I am forced to create something that is exciting for myself, as well as the viewer.
I work from photographs to conduct a sort of devolution, using the flattened photographic image to transform into a painted image, created in a deconstructed painting technique, dry paint placed directly on the canvas by hand.
I am currently creating a series of paintings that seeks to add to the conversation on the material of paint, and the act of creating a painting. I am using the materials in an unconventional way to produce paintings that can be both figurative and abstract."
