Painting is a medium that is less inherently tied to the world around us than photography. It is something that can spring purely from the mind, only limited by physics as applied to the materials.

For me, it allows pure exploration of a reality beyond the nominal: Space, shape and colour come together to create unnamable wholes.

In my painting process, I start with a rough sketch drawn quickly and intuitively. As a painting then evolves, I allow the accumulation of spontaneous gestures to change the direction. By looking and responding, continuously adding and subtracting, I seek to pull some structural order out of chaotic serendipity.
