"Abstract expressionism" is the appropriate label for my paintings. This term includes the color-field theorists like Mark Rothko and Hans Hoffman, and I've enjoyed incorporating their techniques and ideas into my paintings.
My newest works are being influenced by several factors:
a) Modern interior design. When I make a painting, I like to imagine that it's going to hang in a really beautiful home.
b) A shift to the "Earth Tones" palette.
c) "Atmospheric Abstraction" - Particularly horizon lines.
d) "Geometric Abstraction" - A contemporary painter named Sean Scully has been a major influence on this style, which Piet Mondrian created.
I have been painting for about a decade. My strongest influence is Jackson Pollock. I love the excitement and the challenge of custom-making a drip painting utilizing Pollock's techniques, which I am always studying.
