This recent series of work a sense of the physical is very important. Brush in paint, paint on canvas. The size of the work, the heavily layered paint and the almost sculptural quality of the 4” deep canvases, creates a dynamic visual experience. The goal with this series is to change the air in the room.

Exploring how specific combinations of marks and colors affect me in deeply profound ways is the focus of my most recent series. I refer to these current large scale paintings as “deconstructed landscapes” and while the starting point is generally inspired by landscape and/or the natural world, the goal is to get to the “feeling” of a specific visual experience.
