My work stems from a long-held fascination with the body’s subterrain.  The works are biopsies, capturing a state or moment.  Ambiguous organic structures allude to ultrasound imagery, which makes it possible to view the intimate interior of the body detached from its visceral reality.   I am interested in the parallels that exist between the investigative technology, language and imagery of microbiology and other sciences.  Fluid paint explores the interaction of chance and intent.  I am immersed in the primal human practice of mark making, a physical and intuitive building and obliteration of form.
