The oil paintings are often accompanied by ink drawings and sculptures in mixed media. The artwork references systems of energy, quotes from novels, and resurfacing symbols for behavior patterns. This series includes illustrating and stamping iconic shapes, and burning and branding into the panel surface. Patterns are created by repeating shapes and sometimes resizing the scale of the shape. Negative spaces and drops evolved into new characters.
My paintings include elements of cartooning and prettiness, as well as areas of control that come from my deep interest in the history of painting, for example, layers of complex glazes next to an illustrated form, indirect painting and brushy gestures. Shapes are rendered, branded, stamped, and rigorously reproduced from projections but made to look like random marks. Taped edges are combined with planned drips, spray paint, and outlines. Paintings are on wood panel, metal cutouts and dimensional forms.
