Historical Context:
"I work in the evolution of process, constantly moving and changing; always being open to new possibilities. Instead of thinking about the work I react to it. Raw anxious energy turns thought into abstract marks...I want my viewer to feel the same excitement as I did when I was in the process of making. The images metaphorically mirror mental states of being such as uncertainty, confusion, anxiousness, fear, vulnerability and inner-conflict. The layers represent a physical moment and effort of time, each day and moment. Life is loaded with layers; the more you live the more layers you have gained." - Jeff Kraus
