My painting is a search for form through color and light. The final image is not the goal. The paintings record my intention to engage the paint, canvas, and the tools at hand- my fingers, brushes, knives and scrapers.
As I paint, my attention is drawn to complements of complexity/simplicity, edges/mass, energy, the movement of light across the surface of the canvas-- reflected, glowing, undersided, rising-- that has spiritual resonance for me.
The medium I use is oil, but have recently experimented with acrylic mixed with oil pastel, and collages made of cut-up paintings.
