Full Artist's statement
My paintings focus on the horizon of our own architecture - looking beyond to the whim of the outside. I believe we all come to construct a personal refuge, static and comprehensible, as context for the surrounding random dynamic. Each painting is built of two independent panels physically joined. These pictures possess a sculptural presence, a subtle challenge to the presumption of a two dimensional picture plane. I seek to reconcile variable perspectives, internal and external, physical and visual, creating a moment of just equilibrium.
