My goal is simple: to communicate through paint and found objects the many and diverse sensations of being within a non-objective environment. I work abstractly because I am interested in the individual and subjective responses to these forms. Whether or not the state of viewing is consistent, a dialogue will emerge through the experiential nature of the work – opening it to a set of truths that can be discussed and debated by all. The paintings probe the viewer; are you being transported to an excited state? Is there elation, anxiety, feelings of curiosity or disruption? In this sense, my work serves as a bridge from the personal to the public, the intangible to the geographical, while encouraging communication and, ultimately, unity.
