My paintings layer idiosyncratic forms drawn from natural structures until they become their own humid amalgamations in a suspended state of disintegration and growth. Tactile accumulations bubble with intricate repetitions and deviations that echo the precarious density of barely-there order in the world. Mirroring both the macro and the micro, these organic forms sometimes seem to map psychologically- tinged inner landscapes, that suggests both the connectedness and strangeness of our experience. I use process to identify the beauty of failed order. An intermingling of high and low, contemplation and spontaneity, biology and fantasy, these saturated paintings celebrate the tension between the foreignness and the familiarity of the natural world and how it persistently weaves its way into subconscious experience.
