ARTIST STATEMENT

 

My work is process based. My encaustic paintings are meant to be visual poems, bringing together disparate elements as a means of articulating feeling states, and recording resonant inchaote ideas.

I arrange components-- color, pattern, geometric forms, reinterpreted nature imagery, mathematical equations and diagrams-- to reflect the beauty and order, randomness and chaos that coexist in the universe and in individual human perception. The synthesis of the various elements draws the focus to
ongoing themes: the passage of time, impermanence, and a reverence for mystery.
