Artist’s Statement

Like technology or like the instrumental rewriting of history, painting too can make more immediate the things we experience. Painting recasts these things in new terms, in new ways.  My painting does not seek to present something impossible or particular; instead it represents something contingent, a re-imagining of what actually exists, a re-alignment of logic that makes plastic the anxiety underlying objects in the world.  A house floating into space, a car accident that explodes into streamers, the USS Constitution firing at itself. Here we see the nonsensical apocalypse imminent in all things.
