My paintings are created in layers. Layers of paint dragged across the
surface with the media altered to create different amounts of transparency
and viscosity in the paint. This process hides and reveals the artistic
process. I plan my paintings very carefully in order to produce results that
are random and chaotic. Things that are beautiful are obscured and things
that are ugly are revealed and vice versa. There is a search for truth in the
form of a vision that cannot be articulated in a definitive image, and so it is
spoken in color, texture and form. I create this work drawing upon themes
that originate in historical art subjects, and these along with my own ideas
address the human spiritual condition in crisis, in evolution, and in grief.
