I am drawn to simplicity and economy in art. Form and color are the
primary concerns to which I respond. My most recent work has taken
on a vibrant life, free of subject matter, and therefore, without restriction. While I will always believe in the merit of the human figure and other
classical values, I no longer feel forced to follow these traditional paths. My paintings have grown into simple shapes and movements where color, and all its possibilities, reign king.
My work is foremost about the visual properties. Some paintings
contain a story behind the abstract, which leads to the image. These
stories or experiences are secondary to the final paintings, and are the
initial steps in the process more than the purpose. My paintings are
simple, and stand alone without clarification.
