My practice explores the ways in which paintings as static images can articulate a sense of duration – the passing of time. Inspiration for these paintings stem from a heightened observation of the dynamic movement of water, while remaining open to, and aware of its potential meditative and transcendental qualities.

My methodology is one of repetition – systematically recording the fleeting movement and qualities of water at the same location over differing times and dates. This data results in a series of oil paintings, where the painting's image of water is overlaid by a geometric grid. The grid operates as a record of segmented time, while simultaneously articulating the impermanence of a moment within a contemplative visual field.
