Paintings

Diffuse color interaction serves as the foundation for this body of work.
These paintings reflect a tandem relationship between electricity, air, and the artist’s hand. Using an air gun, a carefully choreographed layering of color dissolves the gesture into a field of unmediated presence.
Color hovers on the canvas like atmosphere, subtly transitioning to create a sense of weightlessness and buoyancy. They are at times airy and light, and at others opaque and dense.
Each one seems to have a different chord, a silent sound that rearranges language into one of personal emotion.
Stripped down to their most elemental components of paint on canvas, what remains is a seemingly minimal field providing an opportunity for contemplation.
