Beneath the surface of my art lies a skirmish:
A battle between order, and exuberant chaos; a duel between good manners, and the impetuous naughtiness of our/my own subconscious.
My work is rarely planned with any detail. I usually attack the painting surface quickly, often wildly, and then calmly work hard to collect the jarring elements into one aesthetic package.
I like things to be pretty in the end, but never too perfect. Small mistakes are charming. Human.
I enjoy artwork that reveals little windows in time, back to earlier layers and the artist evolving intentions
