Painting Statement

My paintings are explorations of both sensibility and understanding of the painting process as well as the search for ontological meaning through the process; which cannot otherwise be directly experienced.

The work begins with a grand gesture, and as a dialogue is established, each painting develops a singular interior dynamic associated with matter, motion and concepts of energy and force.

The aim is to reveal my appreciation of a shifting reality through the depiction of matter as it takes on form… the birth of order through spontaneous organization. The works begins to breathe as they pulsate and vibrate with color and light. Each work takes a life of its’ own as marks weave through the picture plane.¬† My paintings thus move toward the achievement of a sense of the primordial world, which lies beneath our understanding of science, culture and history …a voyage in search of the sublime.
