abstract, modern, landscape


We live in a High-Tech visual world dominated by computerized special effects and video/DVD manipulations. We are surrounded by digitized, photoshoped and computer-generated images. All this technology is available to everyone, even children.  What is a mere painter to do? 

I have set myself the task of using only traditional methods and materials to produce paintings that not only draw people in, but will hold their own - even in this modern world of easy technological solutions. 

Although structurally abstract, I think of my paintings in landscape terms. Focused on the transition from light to dark, and referring to the natural, or real world, they infer a sense of ‘place’.  Clarity, and the use of color to achieve a certain psychological edge are of primary interest to me.   

My paintings are neither issue-driven, nor an anthropological examination of cultural minutiae - but rather a very personal exploration of my own particular signatures.
