About the Work
The artist contemplates suburban spaces animated by wildlife and creates open narratives of unexpected creaturely semblances among familiar structures. Methods are drawn from lived sensorial experiences and perceptions to create the transmission of affect. Chance techniques using a loaded brush, tachiste marks, and rough-hewn materials co-exist with the more formal geometry, color field, and romantic tonalism. The artist questions perception by skewing the uncanny with the enchanting.
