My paintings record the synthesization of what I see, a visual dialogue of the moment. I use the interaction of color to create lines, forms, shadows and shapes. The dynamics of this interaction excites me. It is this energy that pushes me to make a painting.
For me, painting is a process of discovery. It’s not premeditated, but a reaction to the first mark I make upon the paper. I remain aware of the edges, and the painting becomes an excerpt of a larger imagined space. My use of repeated forms, lines and juxtapositions is my visual “shorthand’. These forms, defined by color are my own record. The emotions and thoughts generated by these forms as they evolve, become the vision’s temporal record. Just as in the gardens that I create, the paintings provide organically formed colored planes. This combination of new forms creates a layered curtain. It hides and reveals - the more one looks the more interactions one observes.
