-------------------------

Common Ground is an extension of ideas that I have been exploring in my practice for some

time; the tension between intent and process is something I continue to revisit in my work. On

the one hand, I feel a strong need to work in an expressionist style, and then once I start, I always

get pulled into the idea of producing strong, bold and almost geometrical compositions.

With Common Ground, I decided to embrace both of those feelings. I wanted to explore more

structured, refined, almost architectural ideas in my work, but didn’t want to abandon the organic

energy that comes out at the beginning of each piece. I found a harmony in this through the

process of painting, building a narrative, layer by layer and uncovering this balance intuitively.

During my time at the Jacky Winter Residency, I was able to work through the ideas of this show.

Being surrounded by nature and having the time to consider my work, I was able to submit myself

to the process and influences simultaneously, not loosing one idea to the other, but

rather connecting them in a new narrative.

Pre-sales for this show open on Nov 8th.
