My painting process is one of possibility. They give me the space to rest from movement.
Sidestepping from my usual practice of walking the city and excavating the agency within the urban grid, this latest work is comprised of a series of paintings and photographs I made of Mt Rainier. The images are based on backpacking trips I’ve taken over the past six years through the backcountry of Mt Rainier National Park.
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.
