These works are a small representation the past fifteen years of my painting explorations.  Their origination is found in nature, discovering the abstract while exploring the representational forms.  My methods include cropping, magnification, and a loose interpretation of the organic,

My desire is to create a journey that allows the viewer the freedom to enter each piece, exploring both color and line through their own experiences. The vibrancy and fluid forms of my surroundings never cease to inspire me.

FALLEN
Hampden Gallery
University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA
January 28-February23, 2018

A collection of drawings and paintings based on my contemplation of the notion of falling: to pass suddenly and passively in to a state of body or mind or a new state or condition. (Merriam-Webster)

Walking, gazing down, thoughts inward. I am looking for clarity.

Objects drop, ideas form, allowing for an interpreation of their fallen state.

Drawing these findings put me into a state of ease, allowing me to organize my thoughts. I was able to return to the roots of my original explorations, pencil and paper. These studies provided a gateway for me to interpret these forms into color on canvas.

When I am most comfortable painting, I find my mind and brush strokes pass into a state where I feel as thought I am drawing. The building up and blending of color enables me to create fluid organic forms. This body of work bends toward a semi-literal interpretation of of objects with a gesteral flow of paint.
