My paintings are an exploration. I work with areas of expressiveness, but they are delimited within the blocks and bands that form a structure.
I am interested in combining that logical structure using the bands and blocks while simultaneously working to touch an emotional chord. I am concerned with the tension between the concrete and the intangible.
The aluminum panels I have been working on the last few years create an interesting support for me. In these paintings I respond to the coolness of the aluminum, the sense of space within the geometric form—my bands and blocks—with the physicality and warmth of handling.
In these paintings I try for a coming together of disparate elements—the hard, high tech quality of the aluminum and the painterly richness—the reductive and the expressive—what you can imagine and what you can touch.
