I am fascinated by limits, boundaries and oppositions. What are the limits of my materials? What are the limits of my ideas? What are the limits of my references, and can disparate references work together in one piece? Can I make a flat painting that appears dimensional? Can I make a dimensional artwork using a 2d painting vocabulary? Can I form something new that feels familiar? Can I be both serious and playful with my work? The desire to create and play at the margins forms the backbone of this series of work.
