The potencies of nature intrigue me, especially environments invisible to the naked eye. Recent paintings and drawings are an abstract exploration of the swimming world locked in a drop of pond water: zooplankton bouncing off one another and the potential and kinetic energy harbored in this tiny environment. It’s the intersection of the natural and the imaginary. Abstracted protozoa shapes jostle, float, and grow in their own fluid world. I’m captivated by gesture investigations of these quasi-biological forms and their evocative energy. I like to think of this environment as a teeming primordial soup with endless potential for positive growth.
