"Each painting expresses its own unique collection of decisions involving color, the handling of brushwork, and an emphasis on repeated shapes and patterns. The resulting imagery aims to resonate like a single chord being struck, complete with nuances of each individual note playing its part to make a harmonious sound."

My paintings focus heavily on color and the effects of light and shadow. Each painting adheres to a predetermined color palette and a composition that emphasizes pattern with reoccurring shapes running throughout. As colors and shapes alternate under light and shadow, a rhythm to the overall image emerges as the eye follows these repeated patterns and directional shifts.

 

Beyond a pictorial account, the paintings offer a multi-sensational experience and a glimpse into the underlying forces at work in the landscape. In an attempt to capture the full spectrum of a constantly evolving world, I breakdown the constraints that a still landscape offers and opt for compositions and environments that appear to be in a constant state of flux.
