Statement

My work endeavors to treat paint as a three-dimensional, sculptural medium, as opposed to its traditional use to create the illusion of three-dimensionality. Thus, my work tends to play up paint's physicality, its texture, ability to be built up, peeled off old supports, nailed, glued and layered. Depth, for instance, is produced by cutting into the paint's surface or by building up or scraping down that surface. Colors also are kept within a close value range, again to play down any illusionistic - as opposed to actual - depth.

As an extension of my interest in paint's physicality, my work also tends to stretch the definition of what makes up a painting and what can be a painting. It seems to me, for instance, that paintings shouldn't have to hang on just one wall - that there is no reason why they can't also sit on a floor or a table, stand in the middle of a room, or, in the case of An Urban Sky , hang from a ceiling. Thus, in the past, I have made a painting that sat on a 20' pedestal (Rapunzel) another 18' work that spanned the width of a room, stretching from one wall to its opposite's (Bolts of Blue), another that laid on the floor and had flowers placed on the top of it (Sleeping Beauty), another that stretched vertically into space (Godzilla [reduced to frames]), and another group of works that hung floor to ceiling (The Great Plains) so that viewers could walk around the paintings and view them from all four sides. Likewise, I think that there is no reason why the front of a painting should be more important than its back or sides. Therefore, I always paint all the sides of my works so that they can be viewed from any angle. For Bolts of Blue , for instance, I painted three sides with heavy impasto, to suggest a layered, twilit sky and then painted the fourth side with a brilliant blue enamel to set off the steel bolts ( the "bolts" of blue) that held the piece together. For An Urban Sky , the paintings on the ceiling are motorized so that they flip over at different speeds, varying the composition of that "sky" from a cold, steel gray to a midnight blue. In addition, like all my work, the paintings that make up the urban "sky" can also be rearranged so that one can alter the sky's configuration - perhaps, for instance, isolating one panel or clustering the bunch into a more regimented shape.

Although the above discussion of my work is fairly formal, the work is not meant to be seen solely in those terms. For instance, my works for the Plains Arts Museum in part represent my impression of Fargo: The Great Plains is an arrangement of colored, rectilinear forms, hung on ropes from floor to ceiling and laid out in a manner that suggests an aerial view of North Dakota - in other words, my view of the Plains from an airplane window. (In fact, a red paper airplane completes the arrangement, in part as a play on the word "Plain/plane" as well as an element of whimsy in an otherwise regimented piece). In addition, most of the parts that make up this piece are held within a metal framework that runs into one of the museum's walls, like the train that runs through town. In the back of the gallery space was Sleeping Beauty , which painted brown with an upper level of spring green is meant to conjure up the Red River bed. All of these pieces also function on a more self-referential level. Two of the segments of Bolts of Blue (which was also in the show), for instance, have slits in them so that one can see through, or "frame", the piece behind them, the way a typical landscape paintings frames and isolates a single rectangle of the great outdoors.
