Inspired by physics, I use the lines of colliding atomic particles to paint states of instability and uncertainty.

Using algorithmic data, I manipulate computer code to simulate particle collisions.This manipulation becomes a drawing process where parameters are set and random moments of collision are captured. Densities of coils, spirals and lines are created by differing states of gravity. They are printed onto paper or canvas and used as a template for building up layers of overlapping tiny dots and fragile lines with gouache or oil enamel paint. I play with color, transparencies and line widths to create layers of depth and movement until the random event emerges as an iconic form.

Through the infinitesimal realm of physics, I explore a relationship between algorithmic data and the pictorial. What emerges are paintings which reflect a tension between technology and handcraft; the rigor of a scientific process and the emotional possibilities of abstraction.
