My work is about the prospect of a painting to be about anything. I’m interested in the ways in which an image or a body of images can both refer to and defy natural interpretations of propositions or utterances, thereby slowing the twin processes of looking and thinking. Using subtle color combinations and a wide range of approaches to paint application and depiction, I weave together carefully considered words, figures, places and things which are important to me. Though not overtly conceptual, they aim to address abstract form; the bare bones of language, math and logic, i.e. those a priori systems which are the foundation of the possibility of meaning, and which are supposed to be mind-independent. When successful, my work comes alive through a palpable, felt tension created by the precarious combination of my fascination with these topics, my general outlook of skepticism, and an infatuation with the material stuff of paint.
