Painting is a process that immediately involves collaboration of the subject and my own receptiveness. This practice becomes a collection of images and rhythms that leave a trail of responses to life experiences. My goal is to form a path that allows the viewer to enter in a way that unites our experiences without homogenizing our differences, so that there can be an open and clear space where there was none before. The work I make resists the spectacle and urges a greater importance for silence, ambiguity, and rest.
