Each painting begins with a photo taken by me; in my computer, I smooth and simplify the image, making room for the painted artefact: the stylized brushstroke. I draw then paint this simplified structure onto canvas; brushstrokes swoop and bend; their paths stacking together to create the image. The paintings show evidence of their pixelated origin like a memory in their bones. I work in pursuit of the micro within the macro to create a painterly world which reveals itself slowly.
