PAINTINGS Imagination, objects in space
My work is primarily in acrylics on canvas or wood panel. The paintings can best be described as
contemporary abstract art, executed in color modulated hard edge shapes with a preference for
curvilinear form. Artistic expression can range from the literal to the metaphorical, from the obvious to the
ambiguous, straddling opposites and contrasts producing a number of stylistically divergent paintings. In a
majority of my paintings and sculpture the intention is to empower the viewer to interpret what it is they see or
feel. Process is both important and mysterious. My form sensibility as an architect-designer is basically
rectilinear; with an emphasis on proportion and minimalism, but as an artist engaged in painting and
sculpture I prefer curvilinear forms. Most of my paintings are non-hierarchical painted in saturated,
juxtaposed complementary colors. Overall patterns of repetition and reiteration re-enforce the absence of a
focal point. The paintings often have no right-side-up resulting in balanced composition in all directions.
My large format size allows the viewer to physically engage with the painting. The large paintings block
one’s visual field creating a visually limited space making viewing more compelling.
