|Artist's Statement |
Over the past thirty-five years my artwork has progressed from Post-Impressionism to Figurative Abstraction to Colorfield Expressionism. This style of art uses the overlaying of colors on geometrical planes to create spatial compositions that are very metaphoric and to some, abstruse. Each work is a continual search and discovery of feeling and consciousness of the universal implications of the abstract multitude, rather than that of an individual repose. The painting encourages and challenges the viewer to associate with the humanistic qualities of needs, desires and emotions, of the social, spiritual and environmental aspects of us all and the quandary of the boundaries of historical and didactic functions that can ensnare not only the person but also the soul.
