My approach to abstract painting is intuitive. I make a mark and I follow its lead, paying careful attention to stopping points along the way to identify the finishing point. I try to stay out of the way of the physical properties of the materials manipulating them only to the extent that each piece dictates that I do so to arrive at a point of pictorial coherence. Much of my working process involves a deliberate flirtation with figurative imagery which, as soon as I find myself going in a certain representational direction, I immediately subvert and go in another direction. This subversion is accomplished both structurally and visually through drawing and applications of paint which defy control such as pouring and flinging and using knives or drawing implements to push the paint around and structure it. The use of metallic paint also serves to block literalist interpretation. The process of the work generally occurs in one session. Keeping the paint fluid is important to allow it to interact with itself to arrive at the final image. I like to work in acrylics as it allows for this freedom of application.
