Curriculum Vitae

Artist Statement

Persistent themes in my work include restlessness, temporality, anticipation and that which is unknown or unknowable. Relying on an improvisational playing out of materials and ideas I attempt to create a poetic distillation of thought and sensation. I am interested in shifting space, still points that are not still at all, a sensual space of fleeting connection, the exquisite tension between isolation and belonging. The composition is at its most exciting for me when it barely holds together. It is on the edge of the image, between forming and fixity, where a wider reality can be seized.
