Artist's Statement:
My paintings are a personal exploration place and emotion. My use of materials creates shape, color, texture and balance and ultimately communicates my message to the viewer.I seem to automatically adopt a loose, grid-like arrangement, symmetrical and consistent throughout the visual field. From there the subject progresses from one panel to another as if in a thought process. Multiplicity of thought. The representational image that is left is an invitation to delve into my unconscious feelings toward the subject. The discussion that interprets the finished image is what I believe art is all about. Dialogue about what each of us sees or doesn't see and how we interpret another person's view. All art is personal, none more than abstract. This process drives me to create. The finished image is a result of the encounter. The manifestation of a subject is rarely predictable; therefore I am as enchanted as my viewers. The blank canvas has no pre-established message. It is my journey to reach the box, prepare the table, open the lid and let the contents flow onto the canvas. Messages and interpretations, emotions and visions. Interpreted by the viewer to create the experience. Interestingly though, as the viewer's situations changes, so does his perception of the art and its message. I am always left with the question: "How well do I communicate?"
