I am drawn to the duality of something being both ugly or different and beautiful at the same time. I have always felt an interest in contradictions, especially those involving the human psyche and nature. The duality within my work exemplifies this. It is detailed-abstraction, calm chaos, controlled frenzy. This can be seen in the use of a muted soft palette alongside dynamic movement. My process also reflects these notions. I take interest in gestural mark making, overflowing textures, and calm neutral negative space. There is emotion in my interaction with the work, restraint even. Each piece starts with large, gentle flows of diluted pigment then rhythmic markings, slowly this is covered with more and more layers of negative space and detailed graphite marks. This creates the effect of fuller bodied clouds that take shape, but still have ephemera, a mystery to them. There is almost a ghost like quality, something flowing and present, but not quite solid. A gossamer quality atop the chaos.
