About the Work :: “ My work examines the material properties of painting and its correspondence with time, process, and the languages of abstraction. Through a series of procedures and responsive decisions, the paintings become a visceral record of their own creation. Marked by materiality and texture, the physicality of the painted surface communicates themes of entropy, deterioration, and reconstruction. Process becomes a vehicle for content, resulting in topographical forms that seem fossilized through the evolution of the painting process” -Brennen Steines
