“Large canvases assembled with pieces of color, shape, and pieces of other pieces. The images are both mechanical and organic; poetic in its assemblage. The parts build on top of each other like budding plants, or an outcrop of geologic formations. Each piece of color is mostly cropped by straight, curved, and hard edges as if they’re picked from discarded machines that have lost
their use in one life, and retain value in another.

There is a reordering or editing of one’s surroundings happening in this world; a recycling of information or data collected in the senses, which is then reinterpreted and delivered as an otherworldly experience via object via representation of that object. These paintings appear to be images of sculptures, and they make me ask why the artist did not make the sculpture to begin with? But this is a stupid question because the painting is a snapshot of something more liquid­ this type of sculpture repeatedly dissolves and congeals­ malleable like an octopus that can expand and contract to fit through any situation. Yes, the sculpture consists of solids attached to other solids, but only the consistency and characteristics of paint captures the artworks sense of fluidity.”
