Artist's Statement & Resume

"In this body of work, I combine abstract expressionist mark making with the precise color placement of a high illusionist painter. Each work starts with a vigorous application of gesso to the panel. Its topography is revealed through a series of washes. Natural nuances in the texture are embraced and treated with sensitivity. Illusionary techniques are used to enhance such nuances and establish order to the surface. The result is mysterious and rich. In doing these paintings, I’m attempting to create “harmony” between physicality and illusion, spontaneous and controlled, activity and stillness."
