I make art that creates movement in space. My oil paintings of geometric masses of color on shaped canvas look sculptural, but mount flat on the wall with no need for a frame. My drawings and paintings leave the 2-D surface to become objects in their own right, to fluctuate between flatness and volume, bridging the divide between sculpture, painting and drawing. Often grouped in diptychs, triptychs, or more, the surrounding space is activated, so that the entire wall becomes the canvas. Unconventional perspective seemingly defies gravity in a boundless space.
Inspired by vast open landscapes, my work is elastic. Paintings float in space. Drawings zoom in to focus on subtle intimate details.
I strive to work beyond the boundaries of the familiar to have the work evolve naturally. Its a wabi-sabi thing. Process is visible. Brushstrokes, and underlying brushstrokes, reveal themselves. Shapes are loosely filled in. Its not perfect. The work keeps on growing.
