Artist Statement
My current work draws upon abstract imagery found within high-speed action sequences in motion pictures. I create compositions by collecting film stills of fleeting shapes and special effects, using a computer to superimpose several frames together at once. These studies become the source material for paintings, resulting in something like a painted collage.
