β€œIn a sense, inexhaustibility is a quality of any perceived object, which must always be grasped in relation to a fixed point of view and whose appearance must always be filled out by imagination – and in such a way that every viewing appeals to a multiplicity of other viewings and the possible continually lies at the horizon of the real.”

- Mikel Dufrenne, The Phenomenology of Aesthetic Experience, pp. 396



In a field of art making that relies so heavily on looking, I am seeking a relationship with the viewer that unfolds over time. As slow art, the paintings show increased visual promise when lived with and encountered in different lighting situations and under varied visual temperaments. The subject of the work deals with occurrences that lie at the fringes of perception.

Forms that dance behind freshly snapped-shut eyelids, things your imagination manifests for you out of the corner of your eye, that strange thing you think you see just before putting on your glasses in the morning - these are the moments that shape the substance of my work.

I see the paintings as imagination screens, abstract accretions of information able to be pieced together by the mind's eye. They strive to be representation of non-places, imaginal fields infinite in variation.
