“The very fascination and inspection of surface procures the thought of saturation, resonance, and complexity. Creating this work allows me to allude to an image rich in history, an aggregate surface subjected to the augmentation of mark-making. The excavation of these images admits the manipulation and translation of line, color, and form. Each layer seems to disprove or negate the one before, to obscure or hide the very route that got us there, leaving only the finished image, which in turn is comparable to our own personal history.”
