Painting is an act of exploration for me, a celebration of seeing and feeling and being curious. It is like another language. I want to give the viewer not an explication or opinion on what is, but to open a dialog, and to encourage the next question. There are many layers in my work, and often some transparency. One painting is usually several paintings, done one over the other, allowing me to explore the place where ordinary reality meets infinite possibility. This acknowledges that perception is not fixed, but changes with time and state of mind. I hope the final image makes one think of process or movement or flow. When you come back to look at a painting the second time, I hope it looks different than it did when you first saw it.
