nocturnal vivarium

they are frustrated, dynamic personifications of repressed restlessness. botanical subjects are energized and affected while often vacant atmospheres are weighted with the presence of a future and ruled by an invisible turbulence.

they have been worked in a language equally repressed in color, opacity, consistency and texture- washed, scrubbed, scraped and gouged against the rigidity of their surface. though paint is their vehicle, drawing sensibilities and sculptural rendering of form dominate their compositions.
