Contemporary Painting and Collage

In the Space of Not Knowing - Acrylic, graphite

In the Space of Not Knowing, 48"x60", acrylic, graphite on canvas


I paint from an improvisational and guttural place. Inhabiting an attitude of allowing and not knowing, I activate the canvas with spontaneous marks. I respond with paint that alternately asserts and obliterates the space. I aspire to paint with the unfiltered expression and rawness of a child. This new work is featured in the Spring 2015 edition of Studio Visit magazine.


I am interviewed along with several artists from the Southern Lights workshop at the Bascom Center for the Arts, Highland, NC. Click here to see it:
