Sensations build and spill over the edges of a conventional canvas. These thick and often crusty flows insist on their presence. Collisions and grafts of past and present meld and emerge over a long painting process to emit a new, compound sensation.
These paintings engage the paradox of how a thing – be it a subject, an object, an idea – can ever stand up in a ground of constant flux.
While the intimate size of these paintings suggests worlds that can be held in your hand, each piece evades capture and seems ready to pull apart with its subtle incongruities.Individual treatment of the sides of each painting creates juxtapositions that further complicate coherence.
