In my work I seek to draw form out of the paint through explorative interaction guided largely by intuition. Often times I will work this form into a figure while simultaneously trying not to overly control it.
Primarily I think about emergence and about drawing forth something which is unseen. When successful, a form or image can be distinguished which pulls away from the paint. It can absorb your attention for a moment before the illusion fades and the awareness of the physicality of the paint as an object draws you back. It is this dialogue, this toggling back and forth between image and object, this momentary suspension or interruption of the usual mode of perception, which I most readily pursue.
