Artist StatementFormally, the paintings are an investigation of line, space, and color, depicting imaginary landscapes and constructed interiors. The compositions oscillate between simple and complex, offering order and chaos in varying measures. I use acrylic latex house paint applied with a roller, creating hard, clean edges masked with obsessive care. Images of machines are drawn in ink as thin intricate outlines and are placed within the domestic environment filled with patterns and botanicals. The patterns become interlaced with the intricacies of the machines, attempting to join or crossing over to interrupt the flow.
