Statement
The art here is an  amalgamation of work and life over recent years. The work itself reflects  inspiration and innovation from an enthusiastic attitude I walk with through my  life.  The work utilizes a process both intellectual  and technical moving from literal representation toward  abstraction.  Usually texture serves as the  foundation for a painting or series. Within this foundation I begin to feel a  focal point from which abstracted image and form emerges.  The paintings are created  slowly, built up over weeks texture upon texture, evolving into  multi-colored,multi-layered and multi dimensional works.  The texture begins with the  feelings I am experiencing at that moment. Then I fill the canvas with color  implied by my emotions. I apply the paint with brushes, sticks, cloth or my  hands, painting, sanding, scratching, scraping splattering and spraying until the  painting is born.  I enjoy the process of  building the work as much as the finished work itself. I love as new textures  and layers evolve, adding, taking away and adding all over again. Some of the  work utilizes different media such as nuts and bolts, steel and glass, thread and  wire.....anything that grabs my attention can find its own intention in my  art.  It seems to me the work, the  art and myself are building an intimate relationship, reaching deeper and  discovering more about ourselves as the work progresses.  And in the end the work finds  a new beginning through it's creation and through the experience the viewer  takes from it, again and again and again............  What is abstract art?  For me it  is the expression of ideas, emotion, time and space which are born in the heart  and mind of the artist rather then the physical world, then through the hands of  the artist given birth into the physical  world.
