STATEMENT

My work is explores all forms of abstraction within the human realm.  All of my paintings are geometrical in some way. They are either from the gestural action painting part of my career (energetic, chaotic, free-form) or the newer body works that are narratives, a vocabulary if you will, of the “language of shape”. They are called “The Geometrix”. I design them digitally and then draw the shapes on the canvas, then the painting process begins.  I have been a graphic designer for over 25 years—the two mediums are now a collaboration... a marriage of the digital virtual world into the realistic physical world. The source of imagery comes from the choreography of metamorphosing organic shapes which embody the relationship between structure, form, movement, tension, transparency, hierarchy, flotation and aspects of color. They are a ligature between contemporary art and mid-20th-century design.
