Relational Inefficiency Statement

Relational inefficiency refers to the interconnected, yet erratic and unpredictable nature of physical existence.  It entangles processes such as formation, growth, destruction, causality, competition, interdependency, and renewal.  It is an accumulation of activity and emergent properties, of its own evolution and circumstances.

The relational inefficiency paintings are informed by natural processes, and largely disassociated from design principles and other compositional ideals normally expected from painting.  While unpredictable, the accumulation of activity is not random or arbitrary.  The works unfold from my conceptual abstraction of organic and inorganic development.  When creating, I don’t focus on specifics.  I instead abstract the underlying processes, and the specifics result from that.
