Statement

My paintings explore the abstract beauty found in manufactured objects.

I look for interesting shapes to explore form, composition, color, texture and emotion.  And, although the subject matter demands to be rendered with an increasing degree of precision and, my goal is not so much to faithfully replicate objects as it is to distill what I’ve seen into visual stories that resonate and stir memories.

I often visit industrial sites and take lots and lots of source photos. Occassionally, I’ll just start with a sketch of an idea, and other times I’ll derive info from other people’s photos (always with their permission). And then I’ll crop and try different ideas to develop compositions that will stand alone on their own aesthetic and transcend the original source material.

The intention is to make studies of light and shadow, reflections, angles, positive and negative spaces, and color fields that will be moving and compelling - whether you choose to interpret them as representational paintings or not.
