“Grand scale paintings are one my specialties. I find that within a large scale I become one with the painting, I am fully immersed with every stroke and gesture. My work is primarily an investigation in visual thinking, The relationships of color, surface, composition, as well as experience, are addressed in the exercise of creating each painting. The work is involved with the possibilities and properties of the materials. The medium is mostly acrylic, polymer matte, and canvas, and sometimes found materials…Every piece is an accumulation of experiences encountered in the process of doing.
Paint enables color to define space and create its own presence. This dynamic is the most involved passionate ongoing dialogue that I pursue in my studio work. My commitment is to keep the work as forward, honest and unencumbered by the burden of current art themes and styles. I paint because it offers me a vision into the pure examination of visual principles and enables me to engage in thinking as a process. It is this visceral and passionate experience that keeps the work fresh and exciting for me as an artist. My most recent work, the “Hidden Agenda Series, deals with what makes an experience memorable, and consists of a pure investigation of fluorescent and phosphorescent paint. The series brings to spectators surprise, suspense and a theatrical experience that offers a new visual understanding.”
