Transformations: Recent Paintings and Drawings
My work has always involved the use of organic forms derived from the figure, botanicals, landscape, the sea, the cosmos. I begin with drawings of natural forms done in pencil and pastel, then transform them in the paintings abstractly.The paintings are begun on the floor: using fluid acrylic paint , a combination of pouring, drawing and drying repeated many times builds layers of color transparencies. The moving forms mimic the flow and change of nature. I consider the current work to be a continuation of my lifelong interest in the ever fascinating universe.
