Through the use of bright undercoats and layers, I experiment with ways to extract naturalistic subject matter from abstract forms, focusing on the parts I find most interesting. I'm inspired by nature, the repetition of its forms, and the endless possibilities of color.
In recent work, space and abstract landscape lead the way to hidden passages and mysterious places. The Tompkins Square Park dog run is also a fascination; constant movement, color and energy, in all weather-- sun, rain and melting pools of ice under bare trees. This work is an attempt to capture the joy and beauty of dogs at play.
