Abstract literally means to draw from or separate. In this sense every artist is abstract… a realistic or non-objective approach makes no difference. The result is what counts. – Richard Diebenkorn
I think of my paintings as un-still lives, at once frozen and in motion. I focus on the concept of capturing a moment of thought, purely through my visual language. I strive to capture the fleeting memories and images that travel rapidly through the mind and represent these thoughts in the layers of color, texture and repeating marks within the work. My language is an abstract collection of marks, textures and color, repeating shapes and forms, with which I seek to find a balance of chaos and harmony. Often these marks will reflect architectural landscapes, roads, maps, repeated patterns, or colors as if seen from above or as recalled from within, a sort of visual record book of the mind.
