My friend Gary came by for a studio visit:
Every time I make a mark its like being in a place I have never been
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.
A multilayered exploration into line, memory and color.
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
Using straight lines to create curvature and volume. To represent the recklessness of going against natural forces.
Painting draws you into the unknown where spirituality breathes.
There are no perfect lines in nature.
Perfect lines are the idealization of the concept of no curvature and cannot exist in nature. They are figments of our imagination and reach for the unattainable. Lines as we represent them define our wonderful imperfections.
