My paintings are about visual bombardment and the instinct to find meaning even when none exists. I pun, blur, layer, fragment, and juxtapose, creating a disorienting iconography. The canvases suggest hidden agendas or anti-narratives that exceed interpretation. Fish are the subject of police investigation; car doors the object of seduction. Elements are appropriated randomly from a wide variety of sources, sometimes digitally manipulated, and then transferred onto canvas by hand. Serendipity, lateral thinking, and the struggle to connect the dots all conspire to inform the work. Titles provide a rearview glimpse of meanings that seep out over time. Ultimately, the work is about fighting chance, the noisy search of contemporary life.
