“My current series presents nature through a metaphorical lens, informed by philosophical, phenomenological and metaphysical concepts and perspectives. The imagery infers macro/microcosmic relationships realized through form, material and process. Additional interests in “non-ordinary” experiences, altered states of perception, mythology, and sacred-secularism have also informed my ideas and imagery. Over the last three years, this series has been a vehicle of reclamation and a way to move forward through the pandemic, climate change and economic uncertainty; the process of making “objects of organized chaos” has been an effort to synthesize disparate components into an amalgamated whole that resists definition, remaining enigmatic and in a state of persistent revelation. My studio practice is centered in creating interactive abstractions that are created through a generative approach.  I develop the images by layering water-based materials on the matrix and integrate techniques such as pouring, stenciling and airbrush on canvas and paper. I experiment with overlapping patterns, geometric configurations and ambiguous forms to inject challenges into my process as well as add compositional complexity. Each piece is its own kind of maze-like ecosystem, indelibly woven assemblages that exist as unsettled states in constant motion.”
