STATEMENT

 

My artwork explores optical expressions of evocative experiences with form and color, where what appears is shaped by what disappears, revealing the unruly beauty of a panoramic present. This is a seeming paradox of evolution, and animates my fascination with fields of proliferating patterns, layers, lines and colors that alternate between construction and dissolution. With painting, I seek to capture beauty that echoes through time, and can be sensed through seeing.

I donate fifty percent of all sales of my artwork to Earth Justice. earthjustice.org. I am moved and inspired by the presence and commitment of the First Nation Peoples, who give voice to their cultural ancestry, to the preservation of essential and life-sustaining natural resources for future generations of people and creatures living on the earth, and to the voice of the earth, itself.
