I was living in Oakland and thinking about how to make something that might capture a state of being. If I were to freeze everything for a moment, could I capture the essence of that moment? What is a moment in isolation? Impossible - this work is only able to speak by linking to each other like a pearl necklace.
Impetus: Color - the specific color - is always the central protagonist in these paintings. I try to take a meditative approach and protect fresh simplicity. Curiosity, intuition and experience lead the way. Honoring the unique qualities of the materials, playing with them and laying them out in a new way. Water, intimacy, fluids, and transparency. I’m a traveler starting from the inside of my body and extending around the world. The scale and dimensions of the canvases have a numerological relationship to my body. Even though the figure may not be evident, it is through my body that I experience the world, and the evidence of my body not the paint store is conscious.
