Presently my work concerns itself with nature of observation and its limits. What does it mean to look and understand or know? I am interested in how certain images have, and continue to influence our perception of the world around us even though they are an illusion, a mere representation of a reality which we cannot directly experience. My paintings make use of this strange visual interaction. The tactile reality of a painting – its undeniable presence, along with itʼs unique ability to confound and allude is an imperative for me in the process of making the paintings. There is a tension here.
