These are what I have coined Quantum paintings. I adapted the aspect of unpredictability that quantum physics has brought to mathematics to study the nature of atoms, and applied it to my process of painting.

The paintings start with an element of chance or unpredictability within a fixed window of possibilities. I begin each work with a separation of intent and control by throwing a paint soaked rag onto the surface. This is the quantum experience, allowing chance, movement and time to intersect to lay the groundwork for the imagery. Next I pick out, from what has been laid down, the shapes and images that I see. I’m sculpting the random act to pull out what has been created by infinite variables of force and action.
