Artist Statement

Color has sharpening aspect affecting our senses and intellect simultaneously. These paintings reflect my passion for color and its interaction with the beauty of natural elements.

Wood-grain patterns are exciting and varied since each is specific to what once was a living tree. Their patterns are as unique as our fingerprints, as important as the colors I use. Layers of color are applied one at a time enhancing each wood grain pattern as the painting builds in luminosity. Conscious of the interplay, colors often change as the viewer moves or the light shifts. Hard edges and added color bands enhance the color and spatial effects revealing another way of seeing the world.
