Vision:
Music is the inspiration for my mindscapes. Texture is the foundation on which color and light dance. Music punches the beat and soul of the paintings, allowing the changes of daylight to renew the focus each canvas reveals.

Exploiting the chemical and physical nature of oil paint to erupt in fiery colors and gyrating paint strokes inspire these pieces.

Art can be viewed at every level of the physical universe, and often times for me, far beyond. Please enjoy the mindscapes.

 

influences & favorites
Action Painting, typified by artists such as Pollock, de Kooning, Franz Kline, and Philip Guston, put the focus on the physical action involved in painting; Color Field Painting, practiced by Mark Rothko and Kenneth Noland, among others
