Patterns of motion and the phenomena of chaos have always been fundamental to my work. I observe chaos not as the antonym of order, but as a prerequisite to order. The chaotic motion gives rise to ordered structures and creates an infinite source of spatial relations.
I place ambiguous figures characterized and defined by the patterns surrounding them in a mystical, seemingly kaleidoscopic space. Each of my paintings is a complex visual metaphor full of iconography developed from personal symbolism.
My process itself reflects complexities of chaos – while balancing control and chance through many layers of paint and often collage, I create and destruct the painting and eventually bring the composition out of the chaos of the surface.
