Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky
June 14—July 11, 2015
Thursday, June 18, 6—8pm
My art explores the infinite variety of forms that appear in nature – the illusive and ever-changing beauty of water, the fleeting and unreachable sky, and the irregular yet repetitive shapes of trees. My earlier work in non-representational imagery focused on composition, pattern and color; it referenced nature, fractal patterns, biomorphic shapes and light.
My love of the natural world has inspired me to depict it in a more realistic way. Drawn to the repetitive patterns in nature, I’m now creating representational paintings while still pushing my imagery toward abstraction.
My current body of work includes both paintings of the ocean and the sky. Using nature as a vehicle for emotive conditions, I continue my tradition of the translation of human experience into the natural states that are parallel to it.
Working in oils, I capture my vision on canvas with gestural brushwork depicting patterns of movement and light. The works span from serene to stormy, echoing the constantly changing state of nature. Composition, color and creation intertwine.
