My abstract paintings are guided by chance and accidental discovery. They embrace the chaos and regularity, the calm entropy that pushes and pulls the world around us. By methodically layering thick and thin skins of paint, old events are covered up, sometimes rediscovered through transparency or scratch-throughs. In this way, the art builds its own history, allowing the viewers to read into it many stories. While I avoid direct representation, it is easy to see the landscape in much of my work.
