I’m a firm believer in the idea that I should “paint what I know”. I combine images in my work, a river scene from one of my cell phone photographs with trees from another and a sky-scape from a third. Where actually the skies were turquoise or gray, I may paint them lavender and purple and add tangerine. With rare exception, my work is un-peopled, their imprint is there but they for the moment are absent. I describe my paintings as landscapes but essentially they are intersections of land and sky. The land plays a supporting, but critical role of providing context and color foil. The skies though play the lead, carrying the whole production with rich and ever-changing dialogue. My paintings are on re-purposed, gallery wrapped canvases or Gator Foam on wood. I paint over former images, but don’t sand down the surface before I start anew. Rather, I leave what came before to show through. Thus, daubs and licks of paint become a ground for new images. I especially like the way the ghosts of former images provide glint and contrast in gold spray painted areas in the new work. Texture for me is a topography of the past. In the early 80’s I exhibited my work in solo and group shows at the University of Utah and Springville Art Museums, Salt Lake Art Center and the Ogden Union Station Gallery. During this time in order to make my way I fabricated large scale metal sculpture and signage at Wasatch Bronzeworks and designed office and retail interiors. Coming to Albuquerque in the late 80’s, my focus shifted to building for two decades. In 2009 a professional change allowed me to resume art making. Since then, I’ve exhibited at Casa Cultura and the Harwood Art Center in Albuquerque and the Albuquerque International Sunport. I’ve participated in group shows and fairs in New Mexico, California, Colorado, Florida, New York and Texas. I resides in Albuquerque’s Near North Valley.
