Artist Statement

5x5detail

 

 

 

I paint to create moments of quiet, spaces for contemplation and introspective thought.  The paintings are explorations and expressions of moments on the cusp of being, fugitive states where the divisions between space and form blur and shift.  Through them I meditate on the constancy of change and the continuous thread connecting past, present and future.

The fugitive moment appears in my work both as the drawn and painted translation of an abstract phenomenon and literally through my choices of materials.  Silverpoint and oil paint change in appearance over time, so that even when I have finished a piece it develops on its own in response to its environment and the aging process.  These changes are gradual and continuous as the passage of time itself.
