Artist Statement

My works emerge in a realm that spans two dimensions to three as I approach painting as object with sculptural sensibilities. Conversations improvised between color and form and texture evoke energy and movement. Along the way each piece inevitably broaches that edge that flirts with tension between balance/imbalance, much the way a jazz riff can draw upon a simple idea to explore evolving possibilities.

SERIES:

Music: visible sound, emotional adventure of composition or improvisation.

Earth: geology, shifts rifts, faults, structures.

Realms: ephemeral views from the corner of the eye.

Windows: discrete events connect when massed in collections.
