Retreat

Spaces, places and traces have been themes throughout my work, both in subject and process. I work with textured layers and I’m interested in how evidence of previous layers emerges through and influences subsequent layers. Although covered, each layer leaves its trace. Through the abstract environment I draw parallels between the earthy and visceral,

the external and internal. Intricate branchwork traces subtle figures navigating this environment. I explore the marks that are left in our environment, our bodies and our psyches by our actions and reactions.  Retreat emphasizes the transitional space both in the abstraction and in the darkened windows suggesting something that once was. The two figures look away, one into the painting, the other off the edge.
