walking lines, documenting paths

Paintings | 2009-present

My painting process is one of possibility. They give me the space to rest from movement. Sometimes my imagery comes from my walks, and my maps. Sometimes they come from semi-autonomous doodles from sketchbooks. I like thick paint, textures, and the organic forms that arise from layers of paint. Each layer of paint responds to the one that came before it, while attempting to foresee the layer that will come later.
