Central to my work is my interest as paint as a material, painting as an action and the question of whether/when painting can just be paint.
My process combines systems of accrual and layering techniques by way of color and stripes, to explore how our experiences and memories literally pile up. The selection of color, a decision both personal and informed by everyday experience, mixes the internal and intimate with the world of received images and external encounters. The stripes on the paintings are the margins of consecutive layers, one laid over the next as days or weeks pass. In other works, membranes of color freed from any support are stacked into teetering piles or wrapped into bundles, becoming objects rather than images.
