It is as though there is a contrasting conversation I have in the studio, a back and forth between order and disorder. My practice is experimental. It involves a series of decisions that contain a history of creation and elimination. Working with variety of techniques and approaches, I create strategies that I fallow and break. By challenging the way, the painting is constructed each layer caries or destroys prior ideas by cutting and fragmentation of previous gestures. The practice is a kind of choreography; a dance between spontaneous and learned behaviors. Both my conscious and unconscious are played out at different times. It is about knowing when to embrace expectations, rules, desire, and even fear, but knowing that it is equally as important to tell when to let them go.
OPENING RECEPTION: Oct. 12 6-9
