The pitfalls of language allure to illegibility and it’s articulation that coerces me into painting. My engagement with making images is based on feeling, and my work is anchored around expression as a confoundingly slippery pursuit. Dualities are something I often use as a tool to develop works, I enjoy the mischief that this stirs up. When the protagonist is also the lover, there is an arm bending going on where the notion of a contradiction neutralizes itself. This slows the work down to a point where in this instance, the gaze of the two are the same. ​ I paint feelingly and painting helps me construct a response, I’m not trying to pin my work down to a specific thought or sensation, it’s a patchwork blanket. The work is definitely anchored around that inability to articulate, or at least the attempt to articulate. Because That's what so seductive about painting for me, it comments on feeling. ​

 

The work is a snapshot that holds its own doggedness, and I hope there is some honesty in that.
