ARTIST STATEMENT & RESUMÉ

ARTIST STATEMENT


Abstract painting, as it moves away from realism

confronts the viewer

with a decision making process.  My paintings use the

classic elements of  figure, landscape, and

subconscious meddling

to create indecision, allowing the painting to become

much more interactive.

When familiar images are used as a point of

departure,

it brings certain stresses into play.  These stresses,

unbalanced composition, lost boundaries,

emotional colors, and aggravated imagery,

all force the viewer to react and deal with

the ambiguities............................................
