I like to make things–unusual objects that exist somewhere between painting and sculpture. The making of these objects are an attempt to explore the contours of the sensory world. These sculptural paintings are visual terrains of dense materiality, of various surface textures, of layered saturated color, and thick sculptural paint creating contoured relief. These constructed paintings explore the qualities of paint: paint as fluid and solid, painted or poured, layered then carved, cut and constructed paint objects that are both topographical and experiential objects.

I am reminded of the Tao the Ching, from Lao Tsu, which is often the case in my studio practice.

Chapter 8:

The highest good is like water.

Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive.

It flows in places people reject and so is like the Tao.

In dwelling, be close to the land.

In meditation, go deep in the heart.

In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.

In speech, be true.

In ruling, be just.

In business, be competent.

In action, watch the timing.

No fight. No blame.
