statement

 

 

The search for balance is fundamental in my work.  My painting process is experiential in nature, as risk and chance drive the work towards welcomed, yet unexpected trajectories. Having lived on three continents by the age of 12, my worldly view has granted me a comfort level with the unknown; the unpredictable and ambiguous facets of my life.

I have a long and passionate obsession with color, shape and space. I am especially attracted to emotive paradox - serene & chaotic, loose & intense.  It is within this paradox that lightness is revealed, bringing a transient experience into view. It nudges me to pay attention to chance, and the willingness to be surprised. Although abstract in nature, there is an underlying visual order that comes through, hovering between risk and control. The end result reveals a complex, yet intuitive symmetry, where the unexpected and the intentional coexist in a delicate balance.
