Painting automatically I try to keep my focus on the moment.
I've been layering my paint between thick clear glazes suspending what in essence are colored lenses that filter light and reflect it back.
My processes are difficult to control. Accident dictates the paintings direction as much as intention does if not more.
A painting usually starts out in emptiness. There is no real plan in the beginning except to paint. I make marks or flood the surface with binder, manipulating it with different materials as it sets up. Since I'm not trying to define space or an idea, engagement with process and materials becomes my primary focus
