The brain is an analogue machine collecting dirt and breeding malfunction. These symptoms of the ‘glitch in the machine’ are often a substrate for my compositions. Developed from a tactile process my work is parallel to the complex studies of the human mind. Neuroscience, psychology, and perception disorders are strong influences for me. My work is inspired by the brains power to perceive reality differently from person to person.
Layers of research, personal experience, and sophistication with materials build up into paintings that join the Artist, the materials, the visual result and the Audience into a scene of shared perception.
A meaning, an idea, an understanding are incessant.
Check back on Thursday for a BIG announcement!
