STATEMENT
I work at the boundary of painting and sculpture, making installations and pedestal-based works that are an elaboration of visual information. Referencing diagrams found in earth science textbooks, I study the way events and phenomena occur in the geological time scale, creating micro/macro records in paint of what happens below a terrain's surface.

My current body of work comprises a series of empirical demonstrations that contemplate and compare human and geologic time. These scaled-down interpretations of larger occurrences are not only an indication of the features of the earth and lengths of events; they are core samples of the act of painting, promoting innovation in the timeworn study of process and materials.
