The World Seen (and Unseen)

The imagery in my paintings originate from direct observation and recollection of derelict landscapes that I happen upon. Whether in the familiar neighborhoods surrounding my Richmond studio or in unfamiliar environs, I am drawn to places where the effects of time and attrition have left their scars.
Merging techniques from both drawing and painting, I build layers of diaphanous surfaces suggesting time and place. Glazing, masking, erasing, and scraping, I work until memory and process merge.
