In my current studio work, I invoke earth's seismic upheavals as a point of departure for incidents that upend us and leave our surroundings unfixed. In the Loma Prieta series of still life and landscape paintings below, I piece together the remnants that are left behind, often strangely familiar whispers of recognition in one’s mind and memory.

In a wider sense, I paint the collected and remembered fragments of the places we inhabit, where familiar visual clues have been broken apart, then reassembled. The forms in my paintings act as elemental proxies for the slopes, surfaces, objects and outcroppings that make up our interpreted geography, in both enclosed and exterior space.
