My goal in painting is to communicate the sense of the wonder and infinite sense of possibility I experience when I paint. Early on I committed my painting to exploring so called abstract painting processes (which are in fact more direct than representational ones) , because I perceive(ed) this as a way of the most varied possibilities and unexplored methods. My affinity with the medium of paint, which being liquid is a form of life itself, solidifies my commitment.
My painting is a progression and development of collaborations with paint that evolves from gestural abstraction, staining and pouring techniques and automatic writing. The late Robert Rosenblum wrote to me of my work’s affinity with Pollock’s. I see my work as similar in intent to the idea of the Mattissean armchair, though perhaps a yoga cushion may be a more relevant description. My patrons complement me by stating my work as a meditative aid.
Hermetic by nature and preference, and so, far from geographic centers of cultural discourse, I am still interested in using my background in design and knowledge of art traditions to engage in dialogue and actions relating to art and surrounding environments, through my published writings and curatorial projects.
