Losing 3-D space in painting has left us with fragmented space, in my workmthe line chop up the space. I make paintings and drawings on surfaces that are chosen because they do not have a prominent presence. I work with images of dense big cities from which I create a network of lines. The lines are bright or white to contain energy or light. I retain writing and gestures that are personal. I look at tensions and influences on the urban environment and reasons that cause these stresses. read full statement
