Painting · Paper
My image anchors are based on landscape, architecture, and organic and geometric forms, and through these, I express my particular sensibility, which is an attraction to undercurrents and atmospheres.
My intent is to reveal the feeling that is familiar but undefinable. The German poet Novalis identifies that as stimmung: “…as all that escapes definition, explanation, and their rigidity; it is all that is felt rather than understood, that belongs to the dark infinite reason of the soul…” When I came across this quote, it expressed my intent perfectly. After having moved around the country a lot, landscapes seem to hold particular mysteries of time and place and memory. In the shapes of the landscape, I can tell a story.
I experiment with materials. I almost exclusively work with oil paint, however, I started using Venetian plaster on the canvas in some paintings about 8 years ago as another texture dimension. I deliberately use it within my composition armature. I also make monotypes, paper cutouts or collage, and mixed media work. Many times I mix medias by using paint, paper and other juicy materials.
