Actually, my paintings are not paintings... they are things! They are not "images" or fictitious realities, they are objects in their own right, they are what they appear to be: things of pure color, shape, and material. The work I'm trying to develop does not signify any esoteric self-referentiality. These shapes, as they crowd the canvas, are forms; massive forms, constructions, structures of protean forces, of tremendous mass, weight and volume, pressed against the limits of the surface, they nearly "engulf" the space they occupy. It is a competition between the form and the surface it occupies... a fight for dominance. In doing so, my main concern is to create a "presence", a physical presence that engages not only the viewer but also the space it inhabits. The viewer is in a way, pushed back by the weight and density of these shapes and then drawn back by the tactile aspect of the layered colors.
