Utilizing painting, drawing and sculptural processes, my work examines the tension between erosion and reconstruction. I’m interested in the tension in visceral conflicts between utilitarian materials such as construction detritus and art materials.

Formally my work speaks to our natural human tendency to find patterns, and our predilection to match what we see to what we know. I seek to define patterns in the compositions that intimate a sense of balance within a process yet can also appear as haphazard, experimental and physical in nature.  

While materiality and abstraction are central formal elements in my work, the conceptual focus of temporality and environment intersect to unmoor traditional notions of the medium of painting. I am intrigued by the notion of "urban wabi-sabi,” the traditional Japanese aesthetic underpinned by the acceptance of transience and imperfection and the physicality and conceptual processes found in damage and repair and the building up and wearing down of the surface.
