My work is autobiographical. The painting and drawings are tangible documents of my memories, interactions and activity. Stories relayed to me, mixed with my own first hand memory, become personalized. The work’s focus is to make these memories and stories tangible and inclusive.
Abstractions, as the vocabulary in my painted and graphics work, is composed of shape, live and scale. There is an inventory of space in the work that, not un-like a theatrical stage, grounds my “characters or actors”. These acting forms and shapes move through and within several picture planes and are created by conscious and un- conscious performance on canvas and paper.
