These are four of a series of eight paintings. The abstract paintings from this series are developed intuitively, with no notion of how the final image should be. I paint immediately after waking up, remembering a dream. I am not interested in translating the dream into form but in capturing the liminal feeling between wakefulness and dreamland, the lingering memory of a dream. This process has resulted in the otherworldly abstract forms of the paintings. The tension between consciousness and the unconscious is also explored through the process of alternating between intention and impulse. I paint or paste something carefully, with intent, then remove it impulsively by covering it or scraping it off.
