I am a multi-media artist and my work explores the relationship of microcosm and macrocosm with imagery often associated with molecular and galactic systems. I am interested in the movement of constellations with their regular and irregular orbits, charged particles and cells swimming under a microscope, and the electrochemical impulses in our complex brains.
In my recent paintings I am engaged in bringing the instinctive, immediate, and improvisational qualities of drawing to the process of painting. With various tools I draw into my paint, spontaneously creating a layered, linear matrix. The biomorphic forms that emerge show the traces of their evolution.
I am drawn to asymmetries and irregularities that produce what is surprising and idiosyncratic.I have frequently used the grid in my work to showcase the dialog between multiple, related images, exploring both the discord and harmony created by color.
