Following meditative, visual threads of curiosity, I try not to get lost searching for resolutions, but to just somehow make it out the other side. What we see is what we get. Experiences, superstitions, absurdities, and desires inform belief, become truth. We absorb our anthropogenic flotsam visually and literally, put it all back in the mix, make more. But at some point, we have to let go of the tangled thread tethered to our beginnings and step out into some kind of light. Drawings and stories unfold in this way, questions that fill in the blanks of other questions, posing as answers. My recent work uses landscape as a vehicle for visual and psychological excavation. Rather than creating pastorals, I’m interested in following a path toward mysterious representation, for which I find drawing and painting to be perfect mechanisms. Layering and entangling lines, shapes, and subtractive marks in an abstract and intuitive approach allows me to uncover a kind of hidden reality steeped in observation.
