When I first started this new way of working, I was very unsure
of what I was doing. Making abstract art, much like anything else
you do in life, requires you to create your own language. Following
your progression and being able to step back and see that you
have grown as an artist and as a person, is what this show is about. I am very glad to admit that I made some unsightly work, because
without that work I would not have learned the process or even
be able to know the difference between the good and the bad. In
short, I would not be where I am today.
I want you, as the viewer looking at these pieces, to be able to
take away what you want. I realize abstract art is difficult for some
people to look at and/or understand; my work is not meant to be
painful, but rather an enjoyable new experience. The content of
these paintings is very personal and represents an internal dialogue. It took me a long time to let go of the thought that I had to search
for answers, and consequently, I had some terrible ideas. It was
when I let go of the ideas that I made something worthwhile. So, as
the artist, I just want you to look for something that you can relate
to and enjoy in my paintings.
