Pendulum Series: I see my work as an exploration of paint and process. My paintings are made by letting the properties of paint form their own marks. To enable the paint to flow I use energy and motion. I use the movements of a pendulum to acquire natural rhythms and free-flowing shapes. My role in creating this type of work becomes almost that of catalyst in that the application of the paint is left to the swings and motions of the pendulum. The sealing of the canvas and the substances applied to its surface are of equal importance to the properties of the paint because, by using a variety of techniques, I can create numerous differing effects. This style of painting removes the intimate and almost symbiotic relationship between paint and painter but replaces it with an energy and naturalness which can only be achieved by incorporating gravity and motion.
