I am curious

about nature's self-referential behavior, and how it guides changes over time. Chaos and order co-exist. The paradoxical nature of life inspires play and practice with complexity as a concept for painting and understanding my world-ing. The interconnectivity of lines and color allow me to see more possibilities of what to illuminate on the canvas or photograph, a kind of topographic map guiding the direction of the work. Finally, the images that emerge guide the work into completion.
