Statement

The paintings in this show are composed of a series of random brush strokes, marks and drips. I begin editing the work by painting around marks that appeal to me. Working additively and reductively I build and edit the surface.  Initially I select single marks to keep, but as the work progresses I include larger areas. I think of these as “collaged” paintings. 

Some of the paintings refer to earlier abstract work in which I was referencing the landscape with a strong horizon. Others are more about emphasizing mark making, and some combine both elements.
