Is there really any space between where you end and I begin?
The relationship between form and formlessness and the flattening of an energetic field are the basis of my paintings. My interest in navigating a space between the physical and non-physical has led me to speculate about an invisible field of consciousness and energy that permeates and connects all things. This perceptual field is a complex system of interdependent interactions whose outcome can change with the introduction of a single thought. I aim to depict an imaginal realm where all natural and unnatural forces collapse into a vibrating energy that can materialize into one of an infinite number of potential realties.
My paintings are constructed using a rule-based system to generate a series of interwoven layers of meticulous repeating patterns of dots, dashes, and grids in highly saturated, vibrant and illusory colors. The flat, unstructured formations of these layers wander over malleable and ethereal backgrounds; individual marks assert themselves and are instantaneously absorbed back into the canvas in a never-ending cycle. Energy vibrates into form, and form breaks down into indiscernible particles of energy. The sum of all parts creates an ineffable whole.
