ARTIST STATEMENT

"My artistic practice explores fragmented volumes that reflect the multifaceted personalities of the people around us. When you encounter another person, you can infer things about their personality by the setting you are in, maybe the clothes they are wearing, and the conversation you have, but it takes so much more time and effort to truly experience that person - to know each side of them. Creating lines and crystallized forms, my pieces begin blurring the relationship of a volume and the space surrounding it. My paintings are a combination of oil, acrylic, and latex paint on canvas

I start first by introducing color, shapes and line, and respond to their development. Constantly moving things around by pouring, scumbling, rearranging, adding and subtracting, the painting comes together after many layers have been placed on the canvas. The work pushes and pulls itself to completion."
