My use of acrylic paints on canvas creates abstract expressive grids, akin to tattered fabric or mesh. My paintings embody a loose structure of toppled bright blocks contrasting with subdued aging and dripping smudges.
These blocks and drips represent the transitions and transformations in life, combinations of what was and what is becoming.
The paintings are split into two or more sections, with a grid-like pattern of roots, streets, or boxes underneath and something growing or melting upward. Under the surface is some measured chaos, and new things sprout above.
The paintings are both concrete and structural, while simultaneously expressive and emotional. In my work, I am distilling my life experience, reconnecting to my creative consciousness, and discovering the layers of its development since my last explorations.
