Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Gesso on Wood.

My abstract works – often muted, hazy suggested landscapes and seascapes, both real and imagined, typically begin with phrases of poetry that deeply resonate with me – phrases that create a visceral reaction. In rather not so elegant terms, words that quite literally send a buzz up my spine or a chill down my arm. The words arrive long before the painting.

Repetition. Reduction. Minimalism. I typically use two or three colors at most in these works – only varying the tint and shade. Working to capture shadow and light, I paint in thin washes. Multiple layers are reduced, wiped away, and then painted over, layer by layer, again and again. With thin washes of paint, the wood grain eventually seeps through, becoming an integral part of the final work. Irregularities in the grain, the occasional blemish, are transformed into something with a certain imperfect beauty, making each piece unique. The final results evoke ethereal, dreamy emotional landscapes – each work a small meditation, a visual poem.
