I have always been interested in patterns found in the natural world. My work suggests a juicy, organically ordered entropy. Many of my paintings have references to botanical forms and could be thought of as abstract, fantastical gardens.
With the employment of an unlikely combination of stain and pouring techniques, using acrylic and ink, drawing with markers on unprimed canvas, combined with embedding textile, beaded textile and other collage elements literally into the surface of the canvas, this for me has developed into an alchemic process. That is, to change the materials from one state to another to have them transcend their forms to give life to another expression. Matter transmutations. Also considering color from Alchemic text: nigredo-a blackening, albedo-a whitening, citrinitas-a yellowing, rubedo-a redding or purpling.
I live and work in a garden so how would I not be seduced? For me, everything exists in the garden, the entire cycle of life, and of course the joy and wonder of a flower. I view the world as a Taoist, seeing a symbiosis of patterns that cannot exist without one another.
Though my work is labor intensive and in some ways highly controlled, I try to live by the notion of no rules only improvisations.
