Our modern lives are entangled in a complicated world that is in turn joyful, tragic, confusing, dark, wild, and brilliant. When a piece finally moves to the wall it is then shaped and formed with layers of drawing and painting until the pieces fall into a striking composition of gravity and space. The black and white lines on canvas splashes across the canvas. The notion of space begins immediately in the work vis-à-vis a very distinctive working process, meaning while working on pieces that are pinned to the studio wall, walking dripping and spilling on the canvases still located on the floor analyzing the values and depths given to the final work. Masters of Abstract Expressionism such a Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell, Joan Mitchell and Peter Lanyon are my mentors.
