Prints & Paintings Inspired by Water

Water’s sheer fluidity interests me.

I’m drawn to the flowing, constant movement of waves and reflections experienced in a particular fleeting moment, such as the calm atmosphere and reflections in early morning light or the enveloping sensation of nighttime in the inky darkness.

The guiding principal in my current work is the duality of grounded and groundless, expressing both the here & now and something numinous and unknowable in the beyond. I am interested in integrating those dualities though a sense of coming and going, and with a combination of organic and graphic imagery.

I aim to communicate that by layering the structured forms and lines of particular docks or familiar chairs with the deeper space and the fluid gestures of a watery expanse.
