I like to deal with fragments. Because no matter what the thought would be if it were fully worked out, it wouldn’t be as good as the suggestion of a thought that the space gives you. Nothing fully worked out could be so arresting, spooky.
— Anne Carson
I make abstract work because I am interested in its ability to operate in a realm in which beauty and tension simultaneously exist without explanation or narrative.
In my paintings and drawings, I employ a series of processes, scraping away, erasing, redrawing, repainting, ultimately bringing to the forefront, fragmented tangent points, tangled structures, patched, disjointed and abutted forms. These agents constitute spaces of ambiguity, places I call, the poetic realm of the incomplete, the fragment, ruin and residue of -"almost was, “and "might become," where discovery and invention are uncovered and reconfigured; their location and specificity remain in question.
