My work involves layered processes, reflecting the conceptual layering at the genesis of the project, exploring languages of relational color mediated through formal systems referencing automatic drawing, abstract painting and process art.
These reference systems are employed as distancing devices, like second languages, to at once depersonalize, objectivize and consequently (paradoxically?) locate a more immediate field of intellectual, psychological and emotive contact.
The tension between material presence and implicit illusion is fundamental to the work; the work demands and defies narrative attachment with the same gesture.
