My work is the continuation of a long investigation into the possibilities and meanings of abstraction. Shapes and lines developed over years of experience mirror deep unconscious and even cellular structure. I am seeking a retinal reaction to the dynamics of color and shape. A strong physicality is also present in the texture and in the obvious response to the material as 'stuff'. All the work displays strong evidence of having been touched. Hovering between fact and fiction a tale is spinning-a story of survival-the will to live and paint with passion. It is these moments of wonder and wholeness that I seek and hope to kindle in the viewer.
