"Mine is a process of sympathetic improvisations, of forms trying on figures and figures trying on features to see if/how they hold. Simply, I’ll make an abstract painting then repurpose the abstractions as figures. This reversal of logic produces melodic and dissonant passages, unstable forms frozen in the moment of their becoming or dissolving. When predetermining a painting seems too direct, too much like language, this process taps into irrational and referential registers to reveal mutable thresholds between forms sparring for clarity and figures longing to relate."
