"These paintings are based on imaginings and meditations inspired by the forms and structures of the natural world.When I’m working I often find myself relating to the forms of nature as a kind of symbolic language, one that has the power to illuminate and animate my feelings and experiences in new ways. Layer upon layer of paint is applied in complex systems of mark making. I never know quite where a painting is going when I’m working on it. My most recent paintings explore the mystery of painting through a marriage of abstraction and representation."
