Representing galleries, Chroma Art Design

modern, abstract


A change in environment shapes my imagery.  Meditation increases my awareness of the center of things and the striking contrast of an isolating periphery.

My process of painting and choice of materials accommodate an altered sense of place.  Movement in brushstroke, shifts of scale, and color juxtaposition create an environment.  The image evokes a sense of place.  Location is felt, but indeterminate.

A modernist aesthetic informs my work.  Loosely improvisational, strong in gesture and brush mark, my painting is direct, unpredictable.  I find it surprising.
