Statement
My current work combines elements of dimensional abstraction, painting, writing, and gestural mark-making to  form a dialogue concerning our rigid human frames and the nature of the soul and its more eternal reality. I begin by directly approaching a passage of Bible scripture; writing it down as a literal transposing onto a two-dimensional surface. As I write, I am less concerned with formal presentation and more concerned with allowing myself to be enveloped in what I am reading and how my hand naturally reacts- as if I were performing an automatic-drawing. I then compose geometrically rendered forms of paint and canvas over the scripture to form an all-enveloping and nearly architectonic container. This relationship between the static and dynamic, rigid and organic, speaks directly to the greater truth of our temporal frames and eternal souls.
