Exploring the mysteries of nature, carefully hand cut mylar is superimposed over a loosely painted image to create an ephemeral and atmospheric picture.  The viewer is invited to delve deep into the space where organic forms are retreating, and at other times pushing through the mists that envelope the painting.  They suggest plants blowing through an environment of light and haze.

 

    My work is process driven, building layers of mylar, paper and paint to create a visual tension between delicately cut and loosely painted. The shapes in the background are covered by matte translucent mylar pushing them back in space only to emerge again  using cut colored paper and paint.  This is done repeatedly resulting in a textural other worldly quality.  The surface is unsettled and active as in nature.
