Statement:

I have been active as a painter for more than thirty years, and in that time I have committed much of my studio practice to the exploration and development of materials and surfaces.
For many years I have worked mostly on BFK paper stretched to linen, where the surface was a mixture of painting, drawing and collage elements. In my most recent work, I have returned to working on wood, this time using a new surface material – diatomaceous earth. The diatomaceous earth surface becomes a substitute and a simulation of the former paper on linen surface. This new surface has enabled me to create a more fluid approach to my work.
My painting practice consists of a weave of memories falling out of chaos, where still life meets landscape. It becomes a mixology; an alchemy which tends to direct the composition toward visual play, a paronomasia of textural complexities and surface variations. I have worked to redefine the concept of landscape and break down its essential relationship within the language of abstract painting. This re-contextualizing is a process which is shaped by continual questioning, and by constant construction and deconstruction. What I seek is a place where one form slips, in a kind of timeless lapse, into another.
I am interested in creating environments for my paintings. I find that this dialogue between installation and painting creates a certain dialectic that opens the possibilities to create a broader interpretation of the work. I would like my viewing audience to experience the work as if they were put into a world that slowly opens up around them and a multitude of visual sensations become realized.
