My work seeks a seamless fusion of the purposeful and coincidental, embodying the random precision through which the momentary and eternal intersect. To this end, I relinquish much conscious direction of my work. I establish a set of conditions where the unreasoned image must be born. I allow the pull of gravity, the streaming flow of liquid, the marks of changes in state (freezing, melting, burning), and the vicissitudes of nature (seasons, tides, storms) to transform the canvas into a world in flux. As the surface is activated, I perceive it as a Precambrian terrain through which the image emerges from countless reactions; the artist’s hand, nature’s hand, the divine hand— seamless. My hand guides, hides, conducts, and engenders, but chance always is engaged with will. Nature becomes more than a reproduced subject, more than a part of the physical painting, but co-creator, and its currents are my brushes. In this way, the image becomes a product of combined wills, beyond what singularly could be intended or imagined. I do not conceive of the real difference between abstract, expressionist, natural, objective—as my work intends to illuminate the strands that weave together their dynamic. The forces conducting the emanation of life and consciousness, the impulses to gather, build, and communicate (as well as the inspiration to destroy), the volition of the mind, body and spirit—all of these are the painter’s primal urges. My work embodies the diversity of my pursuits and paths, the impact of deep swinging emotion, and reflects the confluence of contradiction that I experience in the world around me.I believe in the spiritual personality of color, the unifying potential of painting, and the mystic act of creating art.
