Uncertain Becomings explores my interest in the physical presence of painting. The surfaces of the work are important. I see these paintings as a sort of reverse or positive excavation process. Negative spaces or cavities are formed from accumulative applications. The surfaces of my paintings intend to reward close looking and investigation. Moments of transparency between areas of thick, solid, smoothed out expanses of paint promote a sense of geologic time or stratification. I’m creating forms through my process that hover between certain dualities: vacant yet solid, ethereal yet earthly, weightless yet topographical. The amassing of layers become suggestive of geologic formations, cavernous and sometimes bodily forms.
