Inspired by nature, history and the spaces humans create for themselves, my paintings and constructions conflate place and structure with memory and perception. I draw upon the experiences of place, seeking to distill the natural world and our perception of things down to their very essence.
Though the work is abstract and minimal, it is anchored in the real. The slight angle of a tree trunk, a series of telephone lines or a particular pattern of current flow within a body of water become communicators of emotion, feeling and experiential place. My work is concerned with activating this space both in the painting and in the viewer.
