. My work is about that information, idea, thought, or feeling that is left unsaid for one reason or another. This lack of communication, or lack of transparency, is recognized in my paintings by what appears to be transparent layers of paint but like the thoughts, what is behind the paint is lost and unable to be recognized. There is minimal representation in my paintings because these feelings, thoughts and ideas, often aren’t clear or identifiable. Instead the unidentifiable imagery becomes a landscape that asks to be explored but more often than not, leaves a person with just as much confusion as when they began looking. The little representation that appears in my work is meant to complicate the landscape and adds another layer between the viewer and the already difficult to distinguish information, causing the information to be lost even further.
