Frozen Earth, Blue Sky
Piece description from the artist
This painting 'sings' through the light that emanates from color combinations that occur in winter landscape. The viewer is invited to enter through the architectural construction of it. Each of my paintings represents a crystallized chunk of formal experience, while being very personal at the same time. My paintings are earthy, rock-like and weighty, and yet they have in them the rhythm of the sea. I am a nature painter; the nature “out there” coupled with my own internal landscape. My inner finds the equivalent ‘out there.’ My abstract paintings hold in them emotion, spirit, soul, and memory. How colors relate is everything: the color finds the light, creates the shape. I listen to how the paint wants to move. My paintings become windows peering into space beyond their four edges. I feel like I am at a construction site breathing life onto the canvas through a simultaneous building up and a tearing down of color. What is the distance between the forms, how do I get the space between them to move? The intervals are found through a process of elimination: I get rid of what does not enhance the whole, and add what does. How can I say ‘the thing’ in the most economical way? Each painting has immediacy to it, but takes time to complete; it’s my own personal paradox. The painting is the consequence of technique and skill brought about by the concept. That is how what ends up on my canvas gets said, and how my paintings come to be.
