statement
Through my art, I generate a reflective space for my audience to consider the engines of existence alongside the power and responsibility of freedom. Vital to my art is the integration of materials, process, and product; it must all coalesce with the audience in order for the content to be activated and the work to be successful.
Aside from pigment, my primary materials are water, which is a fundamental substance for life, and plastic, which is a perfect example of human ingenuity, creativity, and technology. These are heavily symbolic at the same time that they have ideal qualities for the painting process I employ.
The process itself is one of fluidity guided by laws, in which I meld my creative choices with physical stricture, like a constant dialogue between myself and the world. This reflects the freedom of humanity within an inherent system of rules that is the Universe.
The resulting images are purely abstract and permanently fixed, like our actions in history. But this is not the death of the process, in life or in my art. What remains is the interpretation of the fixed and what we choose to do with them.
My art does not declare truth, but rather provides a bridge to be crossed by the willing and willful.
