In the One Big Love series, my process continues to address the dialectic between material memory and the nature of morphogenesis. Nature here asserts itself in the representation of time. Forms follow inevitable paths of least resistance, appearing as waves, crenelations, fractals, or windswept hair, as colors reveal clues to process and whole histories through pentimenti.

Their shapes are conceived of intuitively, but aim for tenderness, establishing the trajectory of each piece as a flow of inevitability. A tilt to the left seems to pull the paint upward, while a bulge at the top can suggest a thrust from the bottom. A curtain is lifted, a story is revealed, a sense of the peek-a-boo projects whimsy and a bit of the unexpected. The title One Big Love comes from a song, and is a nod to the forces of nature.
