“My work is about play and experimentation - celebrating the delight of accident and mistake and allowing them to be a mentor. My life as an artist is guided by a process dedicated to discovering that which hides beneath the surface; concealment is revelation’s twin. I am most interested in exploring the subconscious and playing with suggestions of mass and volume in a way that gives the viewer enough hints to run with, but not so many as to leave nowhere to run (to know the circle by merely showing the curve). I am constantly striving to include the political and the private - to express the landscape without and the landscape within.”
