Varying configurations of image and form, chance and control, the hand made and mass-produced are my entry point into painting. The process embodies a struggle to make intelligible a complex and fragmented, miniature space that teeters between representation and abstraction.
Flat images are modeled into three-dimensional folds; which have little to do with their 2 dimensional contours- creating topographies of images. This process of translation creates a loss, distortion and fracture, yet the scrambled image becomes a field of possibilities-cultural hallucinations, and open-ended associations; a kind of visual ‘backmasking’.
The work investigates the complexity of our instinctual need to locate ourselves within a space, our innate desire to find pattern, and the ever-present possibility of unintelligibility within the inundation of images that characterizes our current cultural landscape.
