My paintings and works on paper pursue abstraction as an intimately coded language of mark-making and editing, producing artworks that invite the consideration of process and materiality in painting as a site for new modes of visual discovery. I consider this work to be an ongoing consideration of process in abstraction, and a central theme is the perception of time via the experience of material handling and mark-making. Presented in the work are “drips”, “splatters”, “stains” and other artistic referents, and these elements are reconfigured on the picture plane as a visual index for the viewer to pursue.
