I am interested in a kind of space that is fresh, airy, vast and open. For a long time, I've felt that a painting is alive when I can feel the space in it. I would like to be able to paint air, but in order to paint air, I need to paint things in it. In my most recent paintings, my vocabulary of geometric shapes, distilled from looking at windows and architecture, is being infiltrated by looser and more gestural forms arrived at through the actual process of painting. Stains, pours and chance encounters generate abstract forms. I turn these shapes into characters and set them to play in unpredictable abstract narratives. Unarticulated white space allows the intensely colored forms to have room to expand and resonate.
