Both non-objective reductive form and a hybrid between painting and three dimensions has been a constant throughout my years of work. Relationships between shape, color, and texture present themselves directly in work that is wall oriented and focused on the specific characteristics of the materials I use - wood and oil paint, and foregrounding those. The wood support with its inherent patterns, textures, color, or history are an integral presence. In contrast the paint application, whether color or monochromatic, is uninflected and matte, drawing attention to its density and allowing a deep light saturation. The painted areas are not collage, though they often appear that way. Chance and first impulses are often a part of the compositional process and those choices do not feel arbitrary, but rather striking, mysterious, and honest.
