"All my work is abstract now, but it references real concrete experiences of the world: nature, urban industrial landscapes, bodies and body parts, etc. Images come to mind and I jot them down in my hand-made sketchbooks. I work with the same forms over and over until they change or morph meaning and evolve into new forms. It is an organic way of working. I try not to limit or control the imagery much beyond a formal need for composition, color, space, etc.

I search for beauty in forms but also try to push against formal beauty. I try to challenge the viewer to consider certain colors, forms, ideas that may feel rough or abrasive or against an internal order and to consider a new view that can open the concept of beauty into unexpected realms.

These works feel figurative more than anything else; they are like seeing someone at a distance. They contain elements of the internal, yet they can be almost portrait like in scale as well. Like beings unto themselves." - Emily Church, 2015
