My work explores the dynamic and the static as they occur together in time. An underground stream, with the stillness of the landscape and the movement of the water beneath is a good metaphor for my work.

I begin a painting by creating a grid of form in motion, such as a body in the midst of jumping. I especially like to use images of objects at the vertex of their movement, such as the apex of a trajectory or the instant before an object begins its descent. This is when action seems the most pure. I place these silhouettes in a deliberate, structured manner to reference incremental movement or calculus. The relationships the images have with one another represent the ‘motion’ of creative thought. These specific, kinematic entities form the conceptual scaffolding of my work. They represent intellectual thought brought into being.

Working directly on top of the pattern, I still the composition at the surface while allowing fluid movement to be present beneath. This stillness allows the paintings to hover between two narrow, luminous planes and interact with light, movement, and the underlying environment simultaneously.

The binary I work with, upper and lower planes, dynamic and static imagery, allow intellectual and intuitive process to be present in each painting concurrently and is the foundation of all my work. Motion is creative, stillness allows a contemplative moment before creation can occur again.
