Some Unreachable Corner, Pastel on paper, 22"x30"

I was twelve before I got my first pair of glasses and the hard edges of the world came into sharp focus. I spent my early years blissfully unaware that I was profoundly nearsighted and so I learned to look closely at the seams between and the cracks in the world I could see, and to appreciate the color and abstraction of the larger world just beyond my vision. The lenses of my John Lennon glasses brought me out of the seclusion of my little world and ever since I've been trying to reclaim the softer contours of my childhood. I have no fantasy creatures in my head, instead calling on my abstracted sense of what's around me as a jumping off point; painting landscapes and the human form as fractured lines of soft form and gentle color.

With my current work, embedding digital images of walls into Hydrocal, I'm blurring the boundaries between brick and stone and photographic representations of them, questioning age and permanence, and the tension between what is ephemeral and what is fixed. I value chance over careful planning, letting the details in the material reveal themselves through the natural randomness in a process, layers working with other layers, veiling and unveiling, reacting and enhancing through the order of operations.
