Artist Statement

I am most interested by what is not obvious to the eye or the mind. Evidence suggests that every entity has a physical footprint, its own atmospheric field. That holds for physical objects as well as ideas. Looking for the hidden side of things is what compels me most.

Working in this way, painting becomes a record of how to search, listen and respond multi-dimensionally. The complexity of the final piece is a complexity of perceiving, synthesizing, and navigating a limitless world.


Go inside a stone.
That would be my way.
…Just enough light to make out
The strange writings, the star-charts
On the inner walls.

--Charles Simic
