Statement

 

My curiosity is in a painting that can move one to action, even joy. It is my hope that the movement and displacement of color in the paintings mirrors the tempo of my thought as I'm working, and on a deeper level, our contemporary cadence. This potential for energy is what I find motivational about painting. The palette is colorful and tuned up. The environment is friendly. Black is used to outline shapes and pop the color. Centered compositions are offset by asymmetrical color applications. My titles often pinpoint visual associations to an object or motif from the world that I usually don't anticipate during the making. Other times, the titles are more personal, indicating a state of mind or emotion that occurred upon completion of the painting.
