dc.description.abstractIn my paintings, I strive for a delicate balance between the objects considered and the conspicuous mark. These paintings stir the imagination to encounter a physical space, yet defy complete illusionary abandon through the visceral surface of paint. The brushwork breathes life into the mechanical calculation of the work in process. A successful painting upon completion is a mimetic vision of the spaces via scraped, sprayed, broadly brushed, and tightly interwoven areas of paint. I strive for a humble and honest representation, an essential vision that is defined by the choice of subject, palette, painted mark, and the history of human error as it attempts a calculated process. This essential vision translates tone, shape, and highlight. These paintings exhibit calculated craftsmanship, yet the decisions they embody speak of anti-heroic doubt that attempts to capture the ethereal beauty inherent in the visible.en_US
