Statement

The work I make is a visual record of my human attempt to understand the universe. Philosophical and scientific questions about the nature of reality, impermanence and the intersections between science and spirituality play a key role in all that I create. I am intrigued by the unseen and subterranean and what happens at the subatomic level. The world of the micro universe is a constant source of inspiration.

 

Currently, cyanotype plays an important role as the physical backdrop to and metaphorical content of my work. I source local materials from nature to create contact print photographs that serve as a direct marker of place in time.  A diverse range of media is poured and added to the cyanotypes to create multiple layers of imagery. Gravity is often allowed to do the work, trusting the paint to forge its own way into a form more authentic than I could control with my hands.

 

The final paintings in their full realization are a story of my attempt to understand nonduality through seemingly dualistic processes: the juxtaposition of controlled actions with a calculable result through the use of photography, with a painting process that is non-linear and unpredictable. As the paints are poured, they flow and blend, react or crack, and make marks on their own, not only serving as an illustration of the microcosmic and macrocosmic vision of the universe, but also perhaps as a teacher of the essence of reality.
