In painting, process is the intrinsic idea driving my work, and each mark and preceding layer or removal of a layer influences the following move.
My background in printmaking inspires a somewhat subtractive approach to painting, where one begins with a layer of paint and uses methods to subtract it from the surface. I often apply and remove paint with a squeegee and or palette knife and sometimes start with more paint than a tool or a brush can comfortably hold, thereby creating a challenge which demands a physical response to the materials themselves. I am interested in exploring how a painting originates in this way, and creating images where presence and absence are inextricably linked.
