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.
