The absurd appears to me as a misunderstanding between people and reality. My work is based around contextualizing different subjects in relation to the absurd.
My painting process is intuitive and open-ended. Concept initiates the process, but the deeper layers reveal themselves through unexpected turns. This process is never truly finished, and the meaning of a work is never concluded.
Paintings may depict something, but they are simultaneously raw paint on a canvas. This puts painting in a state of friction between being and non-being. This tension keeps me engaged in experimenting with the medium of oil paint.
Solitude is at the center. In isolation, subjects reveal an inner experience, which can either collide or harmonize with another complexity. Either way, the energy from the process is kept alive.
