I have approached the visual arts through the medium of printmaking which lends itself to experimentation and risky play.
My printmaking informs my painting. Both develop a nonfigurative language with a focus on my interior world. Exterior reference is apparent, but it is incidental. I don?t begin with an exterior subject, rather an anthrocentric structure developed from within. This structure provides a framework for what is spontaneous. It is what the Chinese call ?hou chou?. Translated this means ?refined clumsiness?. My work belongs to a stream of primal and calligraphic mark making that meets the objective exterior reality with its own gestural language.
