For over 20 years, my work has been exploring the complex relationship between
representation and abstraction. The motif-driven compositions, comprised of natural, social and
historical iconography, serve as a framework to investigate this interaction. The automatic
process, in which they are executed, combined with the use of traditional and non-traditional
materials, allows me to work in an abstract manner, yet still follow certain established rules of academic or image-based painting. Oil, sawdust, charcoal and found objects often collide in the works, creating surfaces of linear and textural alchemy.
