Statement

 

I best describe my style as latter day fauve. My working process incorporates an inner/outer approach to landscape.  Exploring color relationships, edges and form as well as qualities of light to express inner states of being and responses to the visual world.  The visual world is a never ending source of inspiration. I think of color as the equivalent of using musical instruments to suggest mood, pitch and resonance. Working on site is a challenge and allows for freshness of vision and clarity.

I am less moved by a subject's physical reality than its underlying essence and evocation of idea.  The paintings begin and often are finished outdoors (en plein air) or the initial concept is brought back to the studio for refinement, integration and synthesis. I do not seek to copy nature but rather to seize a harmony between numerous relationships and transpose them according to a new and original logic.

Collections; Pfizer, McGraw Hill, Pace University, Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, Ritz Carlton Hotel and others.
