About The Artwork

I use photographs and historical artworks to create drawings that investigate the residue of humanity around and inside me. My work is a means of deep communication and a way of reconciling relationships. This portrait uses optics, a grid and the rainbow to describe the complexity of our world.The figure holds a prickly pear cactus. The cactus signifies hardiness, clever weaponry, and ability to endure change. I feel these characteristics are part of life and my ability to embody them leads to a full spectra of experience. The work is on archival paper and is ready to be framed.

The arrival of the Pandemic has effected everyone and everything. For me, somehow, its arrival induced a new way of exploring and thinking about structure, composition and color in my painting. Specifically, and after much experimentation last year, I began applying paint in a freer, liberating and abstract way. Furthermore, I joined a bicycle club and cycle daily with other riders through the valley and into the mountains. These incredible journeys power my artistic vision: the images and sensations I experience provide the raw materials for my new paintings. I call the new approach: Making not Knowing which also refers to the practice of creation during very uncertain times. I had an inaugural exhibition at Anne Bedrick Art Gallery in Cathedral City in January 2021, and four large canvasses from my new oeuvre are part of a project entitled Artists Comment, conceived by Bill Schinsky, of the Coachella Valley Art Center (CVAC), Indio. Seven artists have made large outdoor artworks for safe public viewing.
