Artist Statement: My art is process-based. I usually work on several paintings simultaneously, slowly working and re-working each composition until I feel intuitively that it is complete. Every mark is carefully planned, but mistakes happen and are a welcomed part of the process. I appreciate evidence of the human condition in my compositions. This process yields a completed composition that transcends the physicality of the piece being a representation of a image or concept on canvas, but rather, allows it to become a familiar dimensional object that is part of my routine - a relic of my everyday life. I tend to conceal select elements of my compositions. This form of reduction and destruction is challenging, but exhilarating. The idea of assembling and then eliminating perceived necessities, a principle tenet in minimalism, is a theme that I strive to apply to every aspect of my life. It is easy to identify inspiration and visual cues from design, typography, illustration and the screen-printing process in my artwork. I believe that the relationships between process, raw materials and an omnibus of various visual elements in my work can be translated as a holistic and complex language that utilizes design abstraction and vibrant systems of overlaid elements to communicate core themes of sustainability, transcendentalism and mysticism.
