"My main source of exploration is architectural space -- the artificial creation of inside/outside, passage, encroachment, and barrier. Architectural frameworks combine with playground structures – which are formally similar but functionally and symbolically opposite -- to explore the movement of open planes and spaces while teasing the viewer with childhood reveries. The tension between “abstract” and “real” creates a realm for observing distortions in our perception of personal history, chronology, and remembered space.
My primary focus is painting, but I use a variety of media to explore the possibilities in this theme. This movement between media energizes the simple joy and free play at the heart of my creative process."
