Artist Statement Submitted 2020

My paintings range visually from compressed lines of color to geometric and abstract eruptions. The colors are derived from a wide variety of natural sources in the environment and from flora in particular: reflections from water, storm clouds, leaves, sugar cane, dead foliage, flowers, lichens and soil are among the seasonal colors used to construct my paintings. I match and blend the colors on-site and then take the samples into the studio where I mix larger quantities of these colors. This is my primary pallet. The paintings are like recordings synthesized from the landscape. Working in a variety of mediums and processes, I utilize many different techniques to apply paint to the surfaces of my canvases.
