Artist Statement
This body of work continues an ongoing consideration of process in abstraction. A central theme of this artwork is the perception of time via the physical experience of material handling and mark-making. I tend to embrace drawings’ spontaneity and directness of approach, and the resulting objects are a hybrid of drawing (graphite, frottage, décollage …) and painting. The physical behavior of various materials refer to time-based action, presented in the work as “drips”, “splatters”, “stains” and other artistic referents. I am interested in making visible material processes that unfold slowly over time, whether under the influence of gravity or via the interaction of opposing materials, leaving a visual index as clues for the viewer to pursue. With this work I hope to open fresh discourse with the tenets of abstraction while skewing that language towards new sites of inquiry.
