Artist Statement

Artist's Statement: This work is made by building layers of oil paint mixed with cold wax medium. The wax encourages a random surface that suggests an organic nature. Next I add structure to the composition so that the piece represents the duality of nature and man. I am trying to create work that balances the effect of human choice with chance, futility, nature and other forces that we may not be able to control, understand or even recognize.

Brief Biography

Since 2017 I have been using oil paints and cold wax medium to create abstract paintings. I was born in Virginia, raised in North Carolina and went to high school in St. Louis. I moved to Richmond to attend the University of Richmond. I am married to Jeff Prideaux and have two sons, Charlie and Henry. I have two dogs: Mercy, a Boykin Spaniel and Dawson, a spaniel mix rescue.
