I have always explored the painting materials and process and think of paintings as physical forms. I look for what I can’t see, where imagery is less important, relying on concepts, visual simplicity and trust in the work. I have reversed, inverted or deconstructed certain aspects of making a painting while holding on to others as a means to find new directions and surfaces for paint to go.
