Artist Statement

The paintings in this exhibition continue my linear exploration of the grid. But not as grid as straight line rather as grid as motion and construction (building).

One line leads to another. Sometimes works sit for weeks until the next layer presents itself. An intuitive ideology of trust that at some point everything will work out.

That stopping point is always the same. A compositional resolution I could never have conceived prior to commencement.

My current palette is black, white, and brown (light, shade, earths).
