VIEW IN MY ROOM
This painting is part of an ongoing series focused on human engagement in mutually shared spaces. In these works, figurative elements morph in and out of a lexicon of imagined forms and structures, with an emphasis on dynamic interaction, and a holistically flowing psychic arena. Paintings in this series are often set in a landscape vaguely reminiscent of the North American desert west, where vast open spaces and stark light are the setting for intimate interpersonal exchanges. Here, the cast off and forgotten detritus of life is resurrected, and narratives of personal significance merge with those of archetypal of familiarity. Constraints of history dissolve and disintegrate, flavoring dust settling into a geology of time. In these works, some may sense visions of a dystopian present or future, while others may perceive a more harmonious and balanced instance of human presence. Oil painting on panel, on wood box frame.

I work in a variety of media – drawing, painting, and sculpture, as well as installation and site specific works. I have roots in the fine art tradition, but in addition, my work is influenced and inspired by a wide range of everyday and vernacular art-making traditions. In my artistic practice I explore a variety of techniques and interests, part of a broader goal of finding connections across varied aesthetic, and social, perspectives. Through art, my goal is to engage with others, and together explore shared visionary spaces. One aspect of my practice is that I like to work with found and recycled materials, particularly in my sculpture and site-specific work – it helps me connect to the world around me, to see it and feel it more directly. My two dimensional work also regularly uses found materials, as well as an underlying process of recycling. In those works, in addition to found imagery and materials, the raw material is often my previous unsold artwork, or miscellaneous studio remnants. Recent paintings likewise incorporate a process of finding: marks, forms, and gestures are cultivated for discovery and revelation, and mined from an ever-growing stockpile of found and collected visual culture. An ephemeral spirit of exploration and discovery explores through this process new lands, experiences, and insights.
