About the Item

My work bridges the divide between sculpture and painting and drawing. Paintings are geometric masses of color in oil paint and wood dowels, on shaped canvas. Often grouped in diptychs, triptychs, or more, the surrounding space is activated, so that the entire wall becomes the canvas. Pieces appear sculptural, yet mount flat on the wall with no need for a frame. Unconventional perspective seemingly defies gravity in a boundless space. Inspired by vast open landscapes, my work is elastic. Paintings float in space. Drawings zoom in to focus on subtle intimate details. I feel the monumentality of the world, infinite air and the density of time past. I strive to work beyond the boundaries of the familiar to have the work evolve naturally. It’s a wabi-sabi thing. Process is visible. Brushstrokes, and underlying brushstrokes, reveal themselves. Shapes are loosely filled in. The work keeps on growing.
