My work extends from an interest in inhabited space, landscape, architecture and the temporal. Usually parallel to titles, my work is a composite of influences, from the history of painting to what I see on daily walks. The images come from the specificity and mass of images and text we process. Interior textiles and exterior structures, concrete slabs and overheard language are deposited as a unified visual mass. I am working with the language of materiality within the structure of painting. The grid becomes a springboard for expression, not a constraint. Surface and grid serve as metaphor for the super-modern condition, demarcating physical and psychological borders. Working with both found and personally-generated imagery, I am interested in defining the image on its own terms, out of context or within a new one. Fences and walls stand as permeable exits rather than solid barriers, grid. They are mis-steps, try-outs, attempts, repairs. The repairs end of being much more satisfying than perfection.
