The idea of thresholds has permeated all of my work for over a decade. By threshold I am referring specifically to a state of uncertainty / possibility which comes from the act of abstract painting. A nexus is to me, a threshold that not only implies an inside and an outside, a universal truth, but also a point of intersecting forces. I find this to be an astounding concept that a nexus is both a beginning and an end for the variables involved. In respect to the paintings, I feel that the viewer completes each work by bringing their perception into the nexus.
