My paintings are as much about what I have left in them as they are about what I have taken away. Drawings are layered on top of each other and then erased and manipulated. Each and every piece explores what is intimate, what is on display --what cherished, what abandoned. Within pieces, each image unfurls then curls up with itself, folding and unfolding at the same time. And all this of a highly personal nature --what secrets are here are not confidential, but exposed and merging. The spectator is given glimpses around corners, but it’s the corners that are in motion. You are motionless, held in place, a place safe, but inescapable.
Imagine a puzzle with infinite and changing pieces and solutions, that is painting to me.
