Statement


Painting is a form of alchemy; materials of little value, when acted upon, change into something much more than themselves; as in making a silk purse from a sow’s ear. I have been painting for forty-five years working with this magic. When any mark is put on paper or canvas we see that mark as existing in front of the surface, somehow accepting this untruth, we suspend our disbelief and enter into a different reality, as we do when we hear; "Once upon a time…", or "A man walked into a bar…". There is illusion; making what is two-dimensional appear to be three-dimensional, a bottle, a figure, a landscape. There is also the desire to make visible what is invisible; the spiritual, and entasis; distortion of the truth to create the appearance of truth. Perhaps this is what Picasso meant when he said; “Art is the lie that tells the truth.”

No artist works in a vacuum. Art is a language that we learn, like the words we speak, and we learn to paint what we think. My first language of art was Abstract Expressionism. I was attracted to the drama and excitement of it, and came to believe that just the pure act of painting—hand, brush, paint, canvas (and my youthful passion)--was subject matter enough. I felt through abstraction, gestural, or geometric, we were redefining the language of art to a purer and more essential form, discarding unnecessary, superfluous elements such as representation and illusion. Eventually I wanted non-verbal symbols, potent Jungian archetypes that would express the powerful dichotomy I felt between the spiritual and the profane, death and regeneration. I saw myself as a priest or shaman, trying to decode or reinvent primordial cultural icons.
