Painting, Visual / Media

I'm interested in the esoteric, the transcendent and the primordial. I'm interested in the dynamic oscillation between order and chaos. I'm interested in inviting the viewer to slow down, pause and calibrate their mental frequency.

Artist's Statement

I am always searching for transcendence. My abstract paintings are achieved through the intuitive process of many layers. I try to engage the "right" side of my brain with my materials and their physical properties to stumble into an arrangement of layers and effects such that the finished state of the piece is more interesting than if I had executed it with a logical plan. To paraphrase Helen Frankenthaler, "every painting is a journey".
