The audience for my inkblot paintings is human fancy.
I want them to co-exist in two-dimensional and three-dimensional spaces at the same time.
I view my Rorschach paintings rather magically. My paintings are very intuitive and they surprise me.
The paintings are metaphors for going inside, behind and underneath the surface. They are about the transparent as well as the hidden. Thus, some of the work is purposely hidden from view, e.g., covered over by other images, sheets of paper and in some instances fabric like lace.
My phase two images were produced during the fall and spring of 2009/2010. They were heavily influenced by my experience at MICA in the Post-Bacc program. During that time I explored a number of “formal” problems with the bysymmetry of Rorschach imagery. This work led to variety of solutions to bysymmetry including the move from two dimensional work to three dimensional shapes that are ambiguous in nature.
