"The process of painting for me is a metaphor for the constantly shifting way I see the world. I have always been fascinated by the way strokes of paint can come together to build and describe a form, and also how they can dissolve that form and return to simply being strokes of paint. They build the illusion that we understand what we are looking at, what we are experiencing, what we are living through.

My paintings hover on the edge of dissolution, questioning what is real and what is simply paint."
