A series of curiosities inform and direct the handling of paint and other materials used in the work, following narrative threads into material expression. The imagery and objects are configured to find new intersections of meaning through overlapping, juxtaposition and voluntary accidents. These discoveries lead to further creative action in response and that is how the work is made, in the spirit of improvisation.
