Artist statement

My work is an exploration of consciousness, perception and memory.

I’m interested in a state of consciousness of extreme focus; where time dilates, and where the brain’s capacity for pattern recognition is augmented. Since it is through pattern recognition that we are able to form and retrieve memories, a heightened capacity in this regard means having access to my entire archive of past experiences and dreams. I pull lines and gestures from this archive to build my paintings. Layers upon layers of lines, gestures and marks overlap and generate the final images.
