Marrying ideas to materials, the landscape of my work develops across disciplines. The work is self-possessed, grounded in the reinterpretation of the matter it is made of. The paintings are made from dirt and ground rocks that are mixed with oil to make pigment. In alignment with the terrain of the natural world, the work is simultaneously abstract and representational.




“My aim is not to make a system… but to picture a world… the picturing of worlds requires not a static and systematic formulation, but an active exploration of images and views, a continual jumping-about, imaginative movement.” —Dr. Oliver Sacks
