My work explores a range of ideas, including the experience of inhabiting a body, the role of physiology in constructing a concept of reality, and the relationship between creativity and consciousness.
Central to all my work, however, is an investigation of chance in the creative process. The initial marks made on the surface are created chaotically; spilling, rolling, blowing, tapping, smearing ink and water in uncontrolled gestures. These marks serve as an initial structure around which I build the composition. I enjoy the challenge of working with marks over which I have very little control, then building order into and around them; much as I create meaning and structure around those things I cant understand or control in life. I also enjoy watching my mind struggle with the dual impulses to invoke chaos and insist on order.
