Painting is a means of documenting personal and felt experiences in every day life. The repetitive color palette throughout my work has symbolic meaning. As an artist experiencing synesthesia, I associate numbers, letters, units of time, people and places with colors, each instance having its own intrinsic color value. I've developed a color-coded system of language based on these associations. I use a palette knife to lay down layers of geometric color forms in a hard-edge format, which are subjected to scraping and abrading the paint surface. The process exposes the paintings to the accumulative and destructive nature of time, while the abstracted memories are obscured by circumstance. The result is a landscape-like composition, a window into the past, and an art object conveying the history of its making.
