Statement : 

I paint paintings that oscillate between the figurative and abstract. I am interested in capturing fleeting moments in life that often escape words. I chase after the intimacy, emotion, sensations that are so powerfully felt by the skin but often lost in translation and communication. I chase after moments where abstraction and figuration form a necessary companionship in order to cling to this moment when the feeling inept for description bubbles to the surface. 

I believe it is essential for these paintings to exist in a place of vagueness, so that it is not over defined by narrative or imagery.  Color, medium, and marks capture a reaction beyond the established composition, so that the starting point does not dominate the final picture. I seek the companionship between abstraction and figuration, to chase after the ever-fleeting, slipping glimpse, where the painting both falls apart and come together.
