A burst of sky-blue spray paint against a crumbling grey wall, a small piece of metal on the ground, the form of sans serif type on a street poster. I carve out a space for these fleeting visual impressions, keeping them from being buried by the clutter of mediated information, documenting the ephemeral.
Merging graffiti and street art techniques with more classic painting materials in a mash-up of high and low visual culture. I create a series of frames with intersecting lines, curves, spills and patterns, all layered in vibrant, eclectic ways. In accumulating these fragments, I synthesize the experience of walking at a fast pace down a city street, catching out of the corner of our eyes a myriad of visual stimuli. We don’t focus on them; they wash over us, indistinct and transitory. The work highlights, with still images, how quickly our eyes dart, what short attention spans we have, and how sometimes we pause for small moments of quiet. These paintings are the focused slowing down of an ever-changing world.
