What is a physical gesture that can potentially be interpreted as playful, and or aggressive, reverent, hasty, sexual, loving....?
Painting, and it’s translation, comes from a compression of many instances in time together.
What is an image of the space between two people? My paintings are space-holders.
These small works on paper are quick—the image that comes from slinging around paint, empathizing, listening, watching, and remembering something seen or experienced is itself, a gesture.
Interpretation is subjective, intent gets blurred, communication fractured. This inevitable truth about human interaction is my greatest anxiety, and so I make lots of work about it (expensive lessons in vulnerability) and show myself that growth and beautiful things exist here. Painting, I love you.
