Cosmological and topographical worlds are created by the layered accumulation of pours, stains and diverse mark-making techniques. Spontaneity and control exercise the form that each painting takes on and worlds are created that are at once violent and destructive yet delicate and beautiful. There is a knotting and cross-pollination of harmonious opposites within the work that include ecstasy and havoc, construction and deconstruction as well as transcendence and decay. Sources of motivation are drawn from the cosmos, phenomena (scientific, optical, geological, meteorological and oceanographic), chemistry, gravity, chance and filth. By working large-scale, the work can powerfully envelop the viewer into the world that is created. The paintings begin a life where the process is resolved in a continuous action until the materials and the composition create the desired balance. During this process, the painting is alive and visually changing form by the slow reactions of pigment that hold various chemical makeups and the mixing of pigments with different viscosity levels. Once dry, I assist with the aftermath: the settlement of the pigment: the soot of what once was alive and changing. By working on the floor initially and letting gravity take its role on the paint, gravity becomes essential to each painting being formed. The paintings work with the topography of the medium itself and form a mesmerizing, sensual and forceful yet radiant aftermath, while also weaving in a slight touch of filth.
