My paintings reflect my interest in organic movement and evolution on a primordial level. The interaction of chemicals and the fluidity that creates an organic life form are the same processes of nature that carve out planets and continents . They reflect fractal patterns, which are patterns left behind due to unpredictable natural processes. The branching of trees, the veins of a hand, water moving and twisting through canals and riverbeds are a few examples. The paintings create a tension between the effect of gravity on the paint and the use of controlled intention behind the flow. They are a metaphor for the tension between human beings' need for knowledge and control and their inability to understand nor control the Universe.
