Artist's Profile

"There's some mysterious process at work here, which I don't even want to understand." - Philip Guston

These mixed-media works are often the product of many months, or years, of work, building up layers, taking apart, reassembling, and adding new layers. There is meaning even in the deeper parts of the work not visible to the eye.

Vintage papers, paint, gold leafing, and thin washes of glaze built up in deep layers and sometimes cut into tiles and reassembled as a mosaic. Images are either painted or hand drawn in ink with a calligraphic pen.

The process is reminiscent of palimpsest (from the Greek palimpsestos ('scraped again') often seen in illuminated manuscripts. A palimpsest is reused writing support material from which the underlying text has been erased (by washing in the case of papyrus and by using pumice or other scraping devices in the case of parchment). Erasure was not always complete and an underlying text would often bleed through.
