DESCRIPTION

My paintings elicit conversation into the histories, and futures of our cities.  I am attracted to personal experiences of space and their effect, conscious or otherwise, on our human condition.

My painted compositions draw on the built environment as I compose abbreviated relationships which convey the soul of the site. The effects of bleach, ink, burning and metal leaf enhance the texture of the linen while the acrylic fields offer a smoother, more vibrant surface.  The variety of materials I employ compel an engagement with the surface of the painting by creating visual distinctions between coarseness and refinement.  My process is a relationship between the execution of formal ideas and concessions made to the natures of my chosen materials.

I know I have achieved my goal when the audience has been drawn to the work through form, color and texture, and has subsequently recognized its own relationship with the subject.
