Southern Construct, 2012 oil 56 x 78”

“My paintings delve into a flux of chaos, harmony, change, technology, abundance, and waste all at once. The concepts behind the work come from our associations with things being constructed or neglected, including physical elements like buildings and landscapes, to the more enigmatic such as cultural traditions, memory, social structure, and balance. The liberating qualities of paint allow the abstract to court the representational, the hasty to synthesize the meticulous, and the frustrated to effectuate euphoria. Painting can make more immediate things we experience. The images I create represent something close to but not yet contingent, a recreation of a human experience in different terms. A nonlinear lifespan from origin to entropy.”
