Much of my work explores Romantic ideas of nature, from a standpoint that is equally reverent and critical. The work is characterized by a testing of formats, perspectives, framing devices, narrative expectations, as well as the mixture of new and historical techniques and materials.
Turning to landscapes of glaciers and icebergs, my most recent paintings depict multifaceted crystalline formations on panels and three-dimensional cubes. Each composition is built through the incremental accumulation of small geometric shapes of transparent color, which add up to spatial trajectories and recessions, opening up windows into the white gesso. For me, the incremental and unpredictable process of constructing these compositions becomes a metaphor for organically growing forms in nature, where erratic, unprecedented forms emerge from finite and predictable elements.
