There is a cadence and tempo to oil painting that stands in full contrast to the frenetic nature of our contemporary culture. My work offers a slow and forensic account of my painting experience. I see a painting as a collection of many moments; I preserve only those that I won’t negotiate. I am interested in the relationships between personal and human stories, between subject matter and the plastic form. I hope that my paintings offer a durational mode of viewing that can lead to contemplation, even knowledge, for as much as I believe we can truly know anything.
