The ultimate objective of my work is to initiate a complex and dynamic dialogue with the viewer. I rely on the experiences and a unique narrative the audience brings to my art. Even if that narrative is not immediately identified the exchange starts as the viewer becomes cognizant of a connection to the painting.
Originally studying to be a cinematographer at NYU I appropriated my visual storytelling techniques into my art. In the "fields" collection I explore impressions - be they literary, musical or travel- on my soul through color and the meditative process of painting.
My paintings are created using hundreds of layers of pigments. Various transparencies allow for the creation of depth and rhythm while the process of addition and subtraction is symbolic of our own communication and behavioral tendencies. I work on several canvases at once and each time the process is very organic and meditative. Colors are selected instinctively allowing the subconscious to initiate the selections. My paintings are unconfined from a pre-conceived final image. Each painting develops at its own pace, independent of assumptions. They are allowed to mature, sometimes waiting for me to catch-up.
I have had solo exhibitions at the Le Meridien Gallery in Vienna, The Open Space Gallery in New York City, The Mikhalian Gallery and the National Art Society in Moscow, Russia. My paintings have been included in group exhibitions at the Allison Sprock Fine Art in Charleston. In addition, my work is in private and corporate collections in 33 states and 23 countries including the Charles A. Ross & Associates, LLC, New York, and Urioste, Merci & Company, London, England.
