Fields of Black Series

When painting, I am always trying to do something that is unique and free. I want my paintings to create their own reality, not a secondary representational one. My goal is to make paintings that engage the viewer visually without depicting anything. I often use repetitive lines and patterns to create complex lattice like fields that interact with shapes or structures defined by their own framework of lines. The works are documents of process in the way lines build and form into larger groupings or configurations. I want these line-structured shapes to have an aesthetic presence as well as qualities that evoke association and reference. From the start, there is no clear vision of where the work is going, but at some point during the process, I sense a direction or I see something that provides me with a kind of focus.
