Artist Statement

All at once I have the desire to create something meaningful and an acceptance that it’s probably not possible.

“The meaning of life consists in the search for the meaning of life.” Terry Eagleton

Using methods inherent to painting, I contrast different applications against one another; the hand-made mark against the finite process of collage selection, the building up of layers against the sanding back and deterioration of layers. The biomorphic shapes reference the known world but make no claim of belonging to it. All of these elements are employed to elicit a response, which is open-ended and undetermined.
