As a painter, I deal with the physical process of aligning my aesthetic to my experience. Perception and recollection, as well as the spectrum of emotions, are at my disposal as tools and reason to paint. The endless possibilities of exploring color, line and form sustain me. Things that are of interest to me are tension, relief and man’s presence in the landscape. Time, distance, presence and absence help me to illuminate my outlook and arrive at solutions.
My paintings become representational abstractions that consider quality of line and allow for the discernment of nuance and implication to be viewed as important parts of a whole. For me, painting transcends time and gives me a way to reflect onto canvas many paths all at once.
