Artist Statement

Painting is a transformation in mind and medium. There is a point in the process of layering paint, where the intention turns, similar to when a lake 'turns over' in the fall and what was once on the bottom circulates to the top, the top layer freezing. The downright sexiness of oil paint, in particular, on a slick surface suggests a more interactive parallel. I set up a structure in which to, weave, layer, scrape and wrestle, turning over marks and colors. Paint is a resilient and lively medium, resulting in a halted abstraction of a certain time.
