Drawing · Painting
I start with an idea developed from the process of looking carefully at the subject from a variety of views and in different kinds of light until I begin to feel a direction to proceed in terms of expressive possibilities. The medium I use and the format of the work, in terms of the shape and scale of the surface I work on, is suggested during this process. The composition of the work may also change, sometimes dramatically, as I move towards greater clarity of expression. Everything on the picture plane is subject to the overall design and the expressive relationship of parts to the whole. The works are both an abstraction of visual experience, as well as being reflective of it.
Works are available through Groveland Gallery for curbside/gallery pickup; items can be shipped, but a separate invoice will be sent for shipping costs once the shipping can be calculated. Visits to my studio in the California Building will be welcome again in the future.
