My motivation is to tell stories and create places. I work with acrylic paint, gouache, dry media, photography (to capture raw material for other work), collage elements, and have worked extensively with intaglio printmaking processes. My work is abstract or figurative. I am interested in breaking down color and form into singular, quasi-atomic units, and to hold a noumenal color or shape in my hands. I have also done psychojournalistic projects on the First Gulf War and the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, as well as serial works on Smokey Robinson, the story of Jason and the Argonauts, a windswept, treeless, and uninhabited sub-arctic island (“Belle Isle”) between Newfoundland and Labrador, bats, billion-year-old light coming from distant galaxies, and the symbiotic relationship between figs and wasps.
