Work Statement

The mind can be like a river, which often has fragments and material flowing through it reflecting the life that we lead. I want my paintings and sculpture to have fluidity and flow. Momentary visions, thoughts, memories and imaginations coalesce into a whirlwind of fragments held together by an overriding sense of euphoria. My paintings often provide a simple structure from a distance yet as you move closer to them, smaller images and details emerge. Similarly, my sculptures often contain discoveries and small toys. Items reveal themselves, often held together by glue and paint. These symbols/items in my painting and sculpture do not add up to a story, they are mind wanderings, a collection of flowing thoughts floating across the surfaces, and poetic interactions. I see international engagement and transcultural interaction as a vital part of today’s discourse.
