Organic change is erratic in a fluid way.  The variations of nature are continuous.  While the whole of transformation is an unstoppable force, points in its continuum are able to be marked; observed; impressed; apprehended.  These points are forms – perceivable and definable.  Defining forms, naming them, calling them opens the great occurrence of transformation.

 

Our definitions of abstract form the assembly of things moving together in time and space.  It can be said that we stop what we articulate.  I call out and stop pieces of transformation.  I look at the space between emergence and drift and choose moments to seize, develop, and relay.  I reflect senses from the whole world of change and refract them into our own – light becoming breath; response becoming sensuality; lust becoming intimacy; physicality becoming spiritual ecstasy.

 

I explore the properties of sensate life in mixed media including oil and acrylic paint, graphite, and digital.  I celebrate the realm where what is moves to what may be.
