Painting and Drawing is a form of writing to me. I view a group of paintings as a text. I join ideas together with information and explore meanings through association. I combine images to make new information…as if the images were words. The goal is to surface the remote elements of each painting as if it were a chapter in a larger text. A way of mapping together information to create another way to see the moment.
Painting and Drawing is a way for me to memorialize what I have found and form a text anchored around a larger idea. The idea that what we see is not always considered or connected to what we feel. If we go further into what we see, we create new moments and new glossaries. Painting and Drawing is a way for me to recover thought and to create a memory of new things. My paintings and Drawings are a disclosure of personal events and histories.
