artist's statement

The process of developing a work of art intrigues me. My investigations can be triggered by an emotion, a nagging visual image or by a piece of collage material. Once I have begun a work I tend to paint many paintings in one piece. I often collage into the works and build them up or extend them by joining together several works, which in my mind are connected. I typically have 5-10 paintings going at a time to allow for gluing time and the percolation of the image. At times it feels as though visual and narrative chaos reign throughout the process, in the end I strive for a unified resolution to the work of art. At a distance the paintings "work"; up close, the viewer should find endless references to the chaos.
