My work is rooted in the sense of touch, our physical relationships with the materials, and surfaces of the world. These relationships are translated through the interplay of drawing and painting materials and the surfaces to which they are applied: the sinking, seeping, and leaching of ink into gesso; the tack, crumble, and slide of graphite on paper. Haptic stimulation short-circuits conscious interference, tapping into memories and feelings that represent primal relationships to the world. Topics, themes, and ideas are then developed as representational associations with the imagery emerging from the process.
