The painting titled "Nothing is Everything" comes from a current body of work titled Markmaking, which focuses on forms and gestures as a way of making a mark. Often marks in my work appear to mean or refer to a specific something, but their actual symbolic significance is in their presence. It's in the fact that they exist. They indirectly refer back to their maker. Other meanings that are automatically projected onto these marks only show how ambiguous they are despite their recognizability.
