Painting is a push and pull of visual weight that seems to give the painting a life without exact representation. It starts with color, and moves with a mark or gesture to begin the story.
Painting has always been the language I find closest to my own internal dialogue.
Most of my paintings are about relationships or rhythms. I like the open space where the viewer can add their interpretation to the landscape or setting. I do not begin to have the answers. I am seeking to give the viewer a choice, to put their story into the picture.
The abstractions are again a push and pull of the gesture. How does one color play off its compliment? The exhibition is a balance of abstracts with elements of figures. The series is composed of mostly large canvases with smaller more moderately priced work.
