Artist's Statement

As evinced in the material investigation, the present physicality of the paintings explores flattened perspectives and peculiar dimensions as they are produced, slowly and meditatively. The paintings seduce with silky and textured surfaces in an attempt to produce images that could possibly transcend their object hood. Layer upon layer of paint is built up, sometimes to disguise alleged mistake after mistake or just restlessness in production which then imbues the work with a specific kind of archaeological depth. The uneasiness between the physicality of the paintings and the scenes depicted represents fluid realities. A somewhat optimistic exterior often belies the broader concerns of the paintings.
