I manage the day-to-day operations of the Fine Arts and Photography & Digital Arts programs and also provide vision and direction moving forward. My work as chair is very similar to the process of making my paintings: both are forward-thinking and create new possibilities through incremental steps.
My work has explored the divergent qualities of space by navigating tensions between pictorial space, physical environments, and flatness. I usually start with a broad sense of the image. I lay in a few general areas with spray-paint and then I quickly start working on the small detailed parts. Each painting has a particular logic so I need to change lots of things as I get acquainted with the piece. Detailed painting gives me the opportunity to continuously clarify and adjust on a very small level.
