Certain Dark Things #78
acrylic on canvas
84 x 72 inches

My work focuses on the physicality of painting and its capacity to echo the properties of sculpture and architecture. It depicts large-scale abstract forms referencing poetry, the human body, microphones and armor. Themes of protection, personal power, love and connection run throughout the work. Architectural strategies like scale and repetition are employed alongside textures that emulate protective coverings like stone, cement, metal and bark.
