These paintings are the cohesive consolidation and integration of multiple aspects of my creative life. The tension between abstraction and realism driven by bio-morfic graphic forms, art history, line, symbols and color. They are allegorical visuals, containing images for the viewer to discover. Integrated and inspired by the art of Albers, Matisse, Klee, Noland, Hoffman and Malevich, to acknowledge a few. The paintings on are oil on canvas as well as works on Arches rag paper comprised of four individual panels adjacent to each other. I see them as “... eight sentences toward a self."
