My interest in the process of logical decision-making during the act of painting, does not involve any pre-conceived notions of the final outcome, instead it derives from my reaction to the materials at hand, moving from one specific decision to the next in order to maintain a balance between control and acquiesce.
The idea of taking painting beyond, to a place where everything becomes fractured and only the traces of meaning remain is a key focus.
I am interested in the physicality of the expanded field of painting and have been exploring these concerns through many mediums.
By considering painting as an abstract map of a journey through space and time, the ideas of experience and multiplicity are being explored.
Painting is not a trace and it navigates the possibilities of becoming by extending the boundaries of experiencing. The current context is the dissolution of hierarchies, decentralization and plurality.
