I have recently
been engaged with a body of work derived from my interest in American
Transcendentalism and an ontological understanding of self as demonstrated
by Thoreau. These Platonic ideals are manifest in simple landscapes
that hover between representation and abstraction.
With a desire
for painting that is active and demanding of the viewer, my practice
is guided by philosophy and social theory as much as art history and
art theory. While much of our culture is directed by a fast-paced,
multi-faceted, capitalist media, painting remains a political and
philosophical sanctuary where one can slow down.
