Skipt Antenna is a memorial to fleeting neural noise, built by piecing together threads of disparate memories.
Jotted down thoughts; sketched recollections of people and places never likely to be seen again; rocks ejected from crumbling structures (ancient or modern); and litter-like neon and discarded bottle caps all create flickering glimpses of biography.
History and scattered memory establish image and shape as lexicon; the present builds on the past establishing resolution in nonlinear recall.
Following spectral remnants through the process of obstruction and construction, I allow each layer to inform my composition through sanded down surfaces. Competing inclinations, throughout the process of painting, exist to build up or tear down, to under or over-inform its specificity or obscurity in an attempt to solidify together hazy fragments.
