Reoccurrence. Possibility. Probability. Wayfinding. Perception. Projection. Memory. Time is perception. The act of seeing, looking, and experiencing, is a function of time, memory, and all of our senses. I think art can help describe the transformative processes of the passage of time from infinite potential to singularity, then back to probability. My painting process - and resulting paintings, represent my attempt to explore and come to terms with these states, of quantum realities, and the nature of time and place. I am struggling to move past traditional symbolic representation of time and space in painting, to a kind of representation that accurately portrays some aspect of quantum reality. I am interested in the ability of painting to capture the element of time - to represent moments in between choice, probability, possibility, and to map new places.
