The Grassland series 2009-present
These paintings are working on the diversion and interruption of an image and creating chaotic fields of vision. I am drawn by the feeling that things happen in the physical landscape and that these events and personal histories are then obscured by time and the process of vegetation, as memories are obscured by later thoughts. As the grass grows over, it obscures and heals the marks inflicted by the passage of events. My painting tries to engage with that through the material process of making an image.
