Oil paint has been the consistent medium in my paintings, as it tends to be very visceral and a lot about the paint. Most recently I have included wax. The work is almost exclusively figurative, although I don't work from models. It is important for my process to be able to change and move with the figures through time and space, as the painting dictates. The paintings represent a deep resolve of mine to pare back to the core of being; to get lost in it, to share it, to not care where I am going with it, and to give myself over to the bigger than me of it. In painting one is able to explore, the medium is malleable, the history of thought and the battle that go in to the work are sometimes visible on the surface. The work is like a journey, every single painting.
