My recent drawings and paintings explore the duality of chance and intention. In this exhibition, Shudder and Quake, I rely on gravity as a natural force that I manipulate through the act of pouring paint to act as a chance event. This becomes a metaphor for a natural force or occurrence in the world. As I observe, trace, and paint perceived forms within the paintings, I engage in a systematic process that evolves through the interplay of layering structure, line, and form. My drawings become an analysis of what occurred. Flux and movement, complexity, and the passage of time are depicted through a process-oriented approach. Overall, my intention is to find greater clarity within a whole structure to reveal meaning. Shudder and Quake generates an abstract language that deals with a chance event, its repercussions, and how to make sense of it by discovering order in what emerges.
