These latest works reflect a convergence of traditional
painting and modernist pictorial exploration. I am an
artist who uses layers of color to suggest real objects
and places. Often my vision is framed by windows and
doorways, creating illusionistic passages of space.
The works are composed of areas of color that flow into
each other and flood the entire sheet of paper. I want
the viewer to see the translucent aspect of the work
through to the structural drawing underneath and even
down to the texture of the paper. For me both watercolor
painting and silk aquatint printmaking are mediums where
you can see and enjoy the process. This culminates in a
richer experience for both the viewer and the artist.
