Artist Statement: My current body of work reflects my interest in the roads, highways and flyways of southern California. Since moving to the state in 2017, I have marveled at the complexity of the twisting forms that comprise so many of the busiest interstate junctions in cities like Los Angeles and San Diego.
My paintings draw upon the energy and movement of SoCal’s thoroughfares to produce monochromatic abstractions. Overlapping passages of thick gel create an almost kinetic sense of gesture and movement. The viewer is left with endless options as they imagine the possibilities of each mark snaking its way across the painting’s surface.
