The predominant aim within my practice is to expose and make evident unique arrangements of those inbuilt characteristics of the material of paint by way of pushing its order to the threshold at the edge of flatness and the beginnings of the sculptural. In this body of work I have employed an all-over, copiously layered approach to the building of a surface, which at the last stretch is pared back, by means of a technique comparable in effect to the aftermath of a zone wherein a process of geological sampling has taken place.
