Full Artist's statement
Recent work considers the notion of quest and includes four complementary projects: History Painting for a Small Town, Conveyors & Outliers, Rules & Measures, and Travel Lines. Wanting to see as much as possible, I long ago found I can be neither for, nor against, any method or material. Interested in the gap between formalism, particularly minimalism which I love, and a highly descriptive, common visual vernacular, I move between the two and it feels like looking at the stars then down at your feet.
