I may be an archeologist at heart. I love layers and strata that evoke history and transition. If I create these layers myself and then get to excavate them, my joy is unbounded.
I’m interested in what’s underneath the surface of things. I think of ruins of ancient cities buried under new ones, the remains of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre unearthed, even a King of England found buried under a parking lot.
I build up many layers, incise, scribble, scrape back, and texture my work, allowing each piece to tell its own story.
