My work has influences from various cultural and historical movements including Persian textiles, Tibetan Buddhism, psychedelic rock culture, and meditative states. I’m particularly drawn to the beautiful patterning that is central to these traditions.
In the most current works, the repetitive mark making and layers of paint form a palimpsest of lines and patterns. The obsessive nature of reinventing the hash mark over and over again is therapeutic as it oscillates between order and disorder. Guided by my intuition to relinquish control over chance, a quiet history develops describing a journey - not a destination. Like meditation, painting occupies the mind and yet it invites a search for something beyond itself. Surpassing the physical limitations of the painted surface, my work searches for a place where chaos and harmony coexist.
