I document my ritualized meditative experience of myself in my studio, my actions and my present and re-called thoughts. My work involves a repetitious development of image and form over a lengthy period. The development of this image is akin to concrescence, the idea of separate parts coalescing into a unified whole and mimesis, which is the representation or imitation of the real world and is usually found in Renaissance and Baroque period painting and is utilized in a fantastical nature in my own work. My practice is rooted in my interest of the natural sciences and the history of mysticism through various cultures, ranging from native and ancient to psychedelic and sci-fi. These interests influence my work through the use of naturally derived materials and my organic process. Over time, the spontaneous initialization of quick fluid marks and placements develop into a constructed surface with an evenly dispersed economy of line and form.
