My process is one of continual adding and subtracting, where rawness is countered by periods of intentional recovery. This intuitive unfolding is at the core of my most recent abstractions, a method that echoes the working of an etching plate. Rubbed, pigmented, and rubbed again, erased passages can resemble pocked stone or a distant space. Marks drawn with a blade come and go, gestures thin as hair, surprise elements that ask for intimacy and synthesis.
What remains is evidence of a desire to lay bare moments of authenticity.
