Statement

My current body of work is a visual exploration of mysterious atmospheres punctuated with light and color. Hazy, diaphanous layers of paint imply an experience of time, history, and memory, an ephemeral visual experience.

Grounded in a language of organic abstraction, my work is also informed by landscape painting, from the sublime power of Nature in 19th-century landscapes to the dappled and euphoric vistas of California Impressionism, and decidedly bleaker depictions of contemporary landscape as well. However, there is an interior landscape at work in my paintings as well, an abstracted, intuitive world.

Luminosity and abstraction suffuse these paintings, as well as a brooding tonality. In the tension between light and dark, spatial illusion and the flattened surface, I explore the territory of the mysterious and the ominous, where the unknown has a sense of wonder, but possibly dread as well.
