I am drawn to the weathered, eroded, worn things of the world -- deserts, old buildings, doors and windows, people whose seasons show on their faces -- things that speak to the metamorphoses of life. I'm interested in the alterations created by time. In my work, I am seeking ways of expressing the accumulation and removal of layers: transformations made visual. My works are complex with many layers of paint and perhaps graphite. Sometimes the paint is laid on with a heavy hand, sometimes in a thin wash, or applied and then scraped off. Then the painting is excised, scratched, sanded, eroded -- reflecting the elements at work in the world, and perhaps in our lives.
