My work I hope seems simple; I am interested in the reaction of pigments on a surface. With my visceral choice of colours, I apply water-based pigments to various substrates, from illustration board to canvas to wooden panel. Then through the actions of my body as I shake, tilt, and manipulate the liquid pigments, effects emerge from the substrate surface which takes the pigments at varying levels of intensity. My gestural actions, the water-flow on the surface and climatic conditions all effect outcomes of various hue intensities. The surface is treated with scrapes, pooled liquids, and pigment-free areas where colours have been resisted.
At times recongiseable imagery appears,
these are intimate and humble experiences on a pictorial plane.
