Artist’s Statement

 

My primary interest in painting is in the experimentation with endless nuances of color combination possibilities. I agree with the statement often made “color is feeling, color has emotional resonance.” I consider my paintings color meditations.

My ever-evolving style would be defined as pentimento—the traditional technique of layering color upon color through the use of glazes. I am concerned with achieving a sense of atmosphere and mystery. With my buried transparent colors I try to create depth, space, reflected or emerging light. Using all sorts of tools and brushes I am slowly establishing a painting language. I work to accept the lack of certainty and am eager to see what comes into play with each new painting. I believe in the notion of transcendence and spiritual possibilities while painting.

 

Above all I value my personal experience in the studio.
