"I build my oil paintings with line and color over a long period of time. A number of these paintings were started while I was an artist in residence at the Maritime Museum in Camden, New Jersey. Some began on the coast of North Carolina and all were finished in my studio in Brooklyn. While in Camden I painted in the gardens of the Center for Environmental Transformation. Through talking to the farmer who works there I learned about the minutiae of form and how to look closely to see the specifics of light, color and rhythm. The opportunity to meet and talk with long term residents of Camden made me acutely aware of inequity and the necessity of not judging other people or my own work. Other influences include the paintings of Constable and Gainsborough in the Philadelphia Museum and the capacious spirit of Walt Whitman’s poetry. Thanks to Cassie Macdonald and Cuz Keith in Camden."
