Today we live in the age of instants. As a result, history has become abbreviated and flattened into footnotes. How I relate to this interval of accelerated time ultimately shapes, defines, and evolves the forms which I create.
Executed daily within a system built upon the rhythms, cycles, and patterns embedded within my every day, the work incrementally grows and matures as time passes. Within this process, data in the form of paint becomes layered, removed, and reassembled through developmental levels of construction and reconstruction; allowing volumes of color to develop in space as each layered application builds upon the previous. The order in which colors are applied and subsequently removed, provide the laws of formal expression; enabling each work's final aesthetic to become a reflection of its own systemic construction.
My chosen form of painting is spatial, unfolding in time; half exposed yet half buried in a constant state of equilibrium. Time exists within space, and space within slices of time. The nature of time is simply a sequence of events. How we choose to spend our time, defines how we're ultimately remembered in time.
