Painting 2020

Thinking about the word landscape as a verb is helpful as it describes the terrain as ever-changing, atmospherically and geologically. The 'climate' of my painting changes constantly too, through small gestures that talk to the many. Talking to Abstract expressionism, talking to landscape painting, talking to indigenous painters. Talking to an internal landscape shaped by the uncertainty of our time.  Like the medium I'm using, I try to remain open to where it wants to take me.  The most fascinating aspect about painting for me is it's fluidity, literally and figuratively.

Works On Paper 2020

These works form the language of my painting. For me works on paper are a key component when painting in a fluid medium. There is constant learning about the way paint moves. The most challenging part of working this way is developing the necessary discernment of knowing when a work is finished. A work may start and finish in a day, a week or month, which aligns with the unpredictability of the medium.
