My work explores the potential of painting in the contemporary world, its unique quality of stillness and treatment of time in an ever-accelerating experience of hyper-linked reality. The virtual network between computers has transformed my perception and experience of the world from the single historical 'vanishing point' to a multi-dimensional worldview.


In cyberspace, digital connections link sites together in a labyrinthian web that branches out in many directions. It is beyond any physical ruler. It has become a new realm for the mind and imagination. My work is an informed intuitive, slow process of pulling and pushing, creating and deleting, resulting in a multi-layered image where brushed organic forms and pen marks compliment or vie for a position within spaces, within layers. I work on a large scale to augment an immersive, embodied experience.
