Joan Mitchell Center Residency, 2021
My paintings materialize from the convergence of frenetic energy, urban grit, nature, light, shadow, obsession, anxiety, meditation, history, memory, and a pure visceral response to both these physical and psychological places. At the very core of my artistic interests lies an unrelenting belief that abstraction enables not just the maker, but also the viewer to perceive and experience another level of consciousness.”
