On the disruptions:
These paintings are complex explorations of surface tension, geometric form, and space. The images are constructed in a way that allows for an archaeology of the image to take place later in the painting process. The painting is not the culmination of materials, but in the end state, the removal of material. The geometric forms, be them stripes, fractals, or tessellations, set up a grid and an ethereal sense of space that the organic forms can then inhabit. Paintings become finished once they reach a stasis of balance between that which is painting and that which is removed.
