"Aligned with the “intelligent materialism” associated with findings on self-organizing matter, these paintings map complex feedback systems of natural phenomena in which culture and language take their places in a continuum of material flow. Connections are drawn between caves, crystal structures and architecture; volitional violence and impersonal intensities; or the fragmentation and stratification of matter and thought. As the artist experiments with the materials’ physical and linguistic properties, painting itself becomes part of this feedback loop. "
