I make art that transforms space. My work is flat, but I think sculpturally. I draw and I paint. Drawing is an adventure as I feel my way around a sheet of paper. And I paint when there are shapes and colors I want to explore. My oil paintings of geometric masses of color on shaped canvas look sculptural, but mount flat on the wall. My drawings and paintings 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 use my tools shape, color, line, and space to connect to the outside world.
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. Its not perfect. The work keeps on growing.
