Of utmost importance to me is the development of color and palette. By using so many layers to build the paintings color develops new meaning and depth. Multiple colors layered and blended convey a sense of connectivity and integration while at the same time suggest a feeling of isolation and disconnect.  These two ideas working simultaneously are representative of the contradictory world in which we live.

“Transitory Moments of Indiscriminate Depth” 40×30

Within thoughts about line and it’s representation I consider how these marks orient in relation to one another.  The contrast of the horizontal to the vertical, where the horizontal references the landscape and the vertical the human form, plays on the idea of man integrating and altering an environment
