Painting is an investment in constraint, in a similar way that architecture bends and works within our complex landscapes and cultural matrix. My work is an eclectic “abstraction” drawn from soundbites, pattern and the built environment/grid.This composite of influences on the work becomes an account of events and spaces, the painting serving as a surrogate souvenir.    

For years my work has been a negotiation of restraint and abandon. Through my work I address the nature of representation through process (surface, space, color, gesture) and image (grid, screens, flags), usually parallel to titles. The paintings become ways I demarcate physical and psychological borders. They are mis-steps, try-outs, attempts and earnest repairs--the aesthetics of the broke-down.
