I rely on chance to animate the surface and create a structure on which to apply paint. Quasi-organic masses are produced by dropping plaster onto a prepared panel. The resulting bas-relief surfaces are a concrete demonstration of the dynamics of the materiality and viscosity of plaster, acting within the boundaries of gravity and space. When I make the work, I attempt to strike a balance between controlling the flow of plaster and accepting its variable forms. If the color achieves what I intend, it can transform the white plaster surface into a form evoking some living mass or magnified geologic space.
