Shifting Ground is an ongoing study of the plasticity of paint through continual reimagined and re-experienced painted spaces.

These paintings loosely describe a rural landscape and each work is a part of a short series of a single repeated image. Shifting Ground is an ongoing study of the plasticity of paint through continual reimagined and re-experienced painted spaces.  This series draws on a perceived connection with place and hopes to find new connections in the medium. Through the indeterminacy inherent in the act of painting, form and composition shift and mold; each image undermines and is undermined by the next, one cannot be seen without or even exist without the other. Each image requires more and at the same time less of the next - there is a simultaneous dialogue of loss and gain. The painted space exists somewhere in-between each image; an unreal space is alive with a brief connection drawn in the performance of paint and lost immediately after. This searching for connection is never resolved but rather exhausted in each work.
