The energy of an event leaves a trace, faint, even invisible but still indelible, on the place in which it occurs. Rooted in this concept, my work engages with shared cultural memory and the subjectivity of history. For visual references I use the physical sites of political action as well as associated iconic and documentary images. My current body of work examines People's Park as a stain on the Berkeley landscape.The process of painting is one of deep reflection: finding the contours and edges of space through the movement of my hand and the paint. I work flat, letting the pigmented water pool and form layers of sediment, accentuating the fluid, ephemeral quality of watercolor. My practice includes research, drawing, painting and projection work.
