Artist Statement

 I paint or form or per/form antidotes to reality.

I privilege the hand, the eye and mundane tasks to extract other hidden possibilities, much like editing poetry. The extractions float to the surface from extensive research into "looking" and reading across genres, from the esoteric realm of film and dreams and from the lived urban landscape.

The intention in the work that evolves is to create ceremonial fields, to mark out something that is missing or hidden from living day to day without reverence.
