Using the formal elements of painting, I strive to convey depth, movement, and a shifting sense of place. My forms suggest folded paper, fragments of wings, domestic dwellings and industrial buildings. I draw from childhood recollections of homes, construction sites in 1970’s Dallas, and time spent in airplane hangars visiting my father’s workplace. Planes of color crop up to create floors, wall-like surfaces, eaves and overhangs. Silhouettes evoke cranes, cables, and overpasses. However, these architectural notions do not remain whole, they fracture and fall away to reveal a concurrence of interior and exterior space, placing the action in the liminal, the in-between. The paintings open up to dynamic landscapes where forces move in many directions at once. Despite the shifting and multitudinous spaces, the paintings ultimately resolve, achieving balance and stillness.
