Artist’s Statement


For years my work dealt with issues of Duality......Gravity/Levity   Doubt/Faith   Life/Death   
Comedy/Tragedy   Fact/Fiction    Age/Youth   Male/Female   Conscious/Unconscious   
Intellectual/Intuitive   Micro/Macro   Timeless/Fleeting   Transcendence/ Earthly

Recently I have been interested in thoughts of Unity Consciousness ....that everything is connected.
I am humbly open to experiences of creativity, flow, and love.

I often use buried images in my paintings hidden under luminous layers of pigment. A subtle curve here
or a nuance of color there might serve as a reminder of past thoughts and ideas.

I'm interested in the expressive handling of paint that reveals an exuberance and vitality of the creative
act in my facture.

There are references to Cosmology….Quantum Physics ...Myths....Astronomical Phenomenon...
Weather....Archaeology…Comparative Religion…Time and Cycles ….Anthropology…Consciousness ….
Archetypes...Synchronicity...Synesthesia...Psycho-Navigation…
Water…..Earth…..Fire…..Wind…..

I employ a menagerie of personal symbols and characters as well as allow the appearance of symbols
from other cultures that interest me.  I use dream imagery and snippets of stories or folk tales mixed
with intuitively invented shapes to create painterly, colorful, highly textured works that hopefully reveal
their meaning slowly and on many levels. I encourage the viewer to bring their own set of experiences
and interpretations to the work and aim to seduce them into multiple viewings and varied perceptions.
