I consider the ability to see light and color to be one of lifes most dynamic and impactful experiences.
In my practice I concentrate on the balance between paint that has been tightly manipulated and paint that has been allowed to move freely. My goal is to find compositions and colors that satisfy my own aesthetic while trying to maintain an element of freshness; sometimes by leaving wide open spaces or by choosing colors that do not feel intuitive.
Each composition is rooted in landscape but has drifted into a flatter, painterly world, leaving all recognizable landmarks behind. Rather than trees or bodies of water, it is the interplay of lines, pooled and solid forms, and value shifts that give these new places life.
