Artist Statement



My approach to painting reflects my philosophy about aesthetics in general... that the key to what "works"... and by the same token doesn't work for me, lies in the transitions. The effective juxtaposition of what may seem to be conflicting or incompatible colors, may lie in the way they blend... how one handles the segue.

As my work evolves, I seek to explore that core concept...the effect of blending and transition from one color, form...and even material to another.

I suppose that in a broad sense, this is my world view as well. That the key to things working between people of various groups...differing genders, religions, national origins, sexual preferences...and colors, lies in our ability to see the beauty inherent in each...allowing them to be who they are and our willingness to see the beauty in the subtlety that connects us.
