July 2023

Based on walks through woodlands in the northeastern US, my paintings become sites where landscape, personal history, and collective memories and desires converge into new forms. Multiple variations on each source show the openness and spontaneity of the process. The paintings all seek a balance between cohesion and expansion, form and space in their interplay between positive and negative space, marks referencing the solid features of landscape and those suggesting air, water, and distance. I see these works as landscapes, imaginative shelters, and social worlds where marks interrelate to build a dynamic and transitory whole.
