The paintings are finished then shattered, allowing “chance” to take part in the image making. Each piece of glass fractures in its own way, segmenting the painted image. Images become puzzles. They are visual and tactile diaries written in a sort of Braille telling the tale of how they were touched by human hands. They are dissected and then put back together. It’s the essence of breaking down the image and restoring it to another version of itself that intrigues me. My work is reverse painted on glass and then shattered and reassembled.
