Artist's Statement

In my work, simple architectural forms are juxtaposed with the lushness of foliage, suggested by layers of rapid paint strokes. Density in the layering allows me to lose form and embrace randomness within the context of the subject. The absence of the figure is deliberate, disallowing an imposition of “story” and leaving the focus entirely on the moment captured, it’s specific qualities of light, color and tonal saturation. The simplicity of the subject is transformed by the moment of illumination and by our unexpected attention. Intensity in the chromatic range brings to mind the bookends of the day, hours when the sun is lowest in the sky.
