I have great taste in music and, at times, questionable taste in television…

 

Hold My Beer and Watch This…is part of an ongoing body of work that investigates the dynamic nature of memory by combining allusions to pop culture with the ribbon motif. The undulating, colourful ribbons function as a metaphor for a non-linear view of experience, time, and thought. Through the juxtaposition of these elements, my work explores the language of abstraction and themes of space, perception and time.

 

Like the metaphor, my process is anything but linear and chronological. I take pleasure in discovering a painting - fighting my way through an improvisational process that relies on chance, risk and uncertainty. Each painting begins without a definitive plan, but draws inspiration and influence from current and past popular culture.
