My work is spontaneous, experimental and materials-driven with references to the visual language of maps, satellite imagery, microscope imagery and landscape. The clean cut lines of geometry intersect the blurry edges of action throughout the painting process echoing the emergence and fading of order and the periodic activity and inactivity of scale. I seek to portray movement on the painting surface that corresponds to the physical action of mark making. My marks are made in a variety of ways: throwing objects at the painting surface, rolling tools over the canvas, and using gravity to move paint drips. I experiment with different materials to build up the painting surface and play with the viscosity of paint to see how it flows around and through the built up surface. Scale and perspective, movement and direction are captured in this way until the paintings find a resting place somewhere along the spectrum of blurred edges and static focus.
