Chromatic Runs

Piece description from the artist

While I do not listen to music when I paint, the colors set up rhythms just as in any great jazz composition. Improvising with color, the colors 'sing' through the light that emanates from the color combinations themselves. I 'listen' for the hidden secrets embedded in the paint itself, and pay attention to how it wants to move across the surface of linen. The surfaces of my paintings resemble ancient walls, in that there is a sense of history alive in them, through the repetition of the "placement and replacement" of paint many times over. A painting gets born when it has a specific presence that comes alive in it, that seems, for me, to come together only at the very end through the last accouterments that are finely-tuned it.
