“I paint both abstractions and figurative works. I make no distinctions, because what I am thinking of is space, light, and form.”

“There is no subject, no object, only a single truth, which encompasses everything and exists in nothing. Earlier paintings involve bowls stacked up on other bowls that fill the canvas and exceed the edges. Everyone has a different bowl and the content of each is vastly different. For me, they make pleasing images. From the most realistic landscape to total abstraction, a work of art is an analogy or allusion to something else that can only be stated indirectly.”

Form, Repetition, Rhythm, and Pattern

We like to make connections. Repeating shapes within a composition can encourage the viewer’s continued engagement as they jump from similar shape to similar shape. Repetition can also create movement, and rhythm across the canvas. A shape repeated over and over can unify the whole. A shape repeated and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and creates pattern. Once a pattern, individual shapes can be lost again, engulfed in the whole, and sometimes as unnoticed as wall tiles.
