Statement:

Working with paint for years has revealed the potential for a multi-faceted relationship with this medium. I explore the world visually through paint, and in my paintskin collage pieces I explore paint as part of the world- a tangible material unto itself. When paint is peeled from a surface, it becomes a different kind of medium- one you can bend and fold. The underside of paint surface that was once hidden by attachment to a support is revealed with a whole new character of marks. The way the paint physically flows and sculpts itself before drying creates interesting, unintentional shapes that can then be lifted and arranged and composed. These freed foreign shapes and marks intermingle with found imagery from discarded publications to create strange miniature environments; the familiar merging with the unfamiliar.
