Painting untethers a mesh of past, present, and future. Intuitive and intentional, the motion and emotion of making is moving towards the stillness of viewing ~ wavering in the density and airiness of our coming and going. Abstraction, a siren for expansive thinking, offers generous clarity and strangeness; also, brutal, exquisite, and base forms of beauty, anchoring multiplicities with many forms of yes.”
