My thoughts are haunted...

In the paintings included in this exhibition, I am using the ghosts of paintings past as a point of departure for paintings present. Sometimes recognizable and sometimes abstract, these images are made of newly added fragments of color and shape that interact with the sanded and scraped surfaces of the past. The works are haunted by trickster ghouls, squiggly jokesters that move in and out of the ether. These phantoms bump up against each other, step on each other's toes and march through the picture plane with legs akimbo, fists raised.

Also included in this exhibition are wall collages. These large-scale collages, like the paintings, are made from fragments of shapes and images, creating an ephemeral world of colliding forms; imagery glimpsed and imagery blocked. Unbound by the rectangle and free of the traditions of oil painting, the collages provide respite from the excavated and worked painted surfaces. They are direct and mutable.

Whether painted or cut this work is an exorcism of the ghosts rattling in my thoughts - some that leap with glee, high rollers, and some that rattle chains.
