Current Work

I think of my imagery as pictorial equations in which the viewer is invited to interpret the solutions as they will. My current work, whether figurative or abstract, is intended to dimensionally rearrange the surface plane into a multitude of spatial shifts. Compositionally the images are at times purposely off balance, other times harmonious or a combination of both. My new work focuses on experimentation in watercolor, a medium which has been important to me in all my years as a painter. I create my own recipes for the results I wish to achieve. Overall I have an impulse to invoke fictitious forces, stir them up and allow free will to play its part in determining the result of the imagery. I consider the process an experiment in both materials and ideas, taking a static surface and turning it into an animated life force. Through this expression, in celebratory fashion, I hope to contribute my voice to the pure act of painting.
