My work is founded upon hard-edged forms and essentially abstract in nature. Nevertheless, these abstractions are deeply informed by landscape and nature. As I move through the landscape I feel and explore the concept of spatial relationships and investigate multiple perspectives. My work confronts perception by subjecting form, and the practice by which it is painted, to severe limitations. The resulting, reductive images both suggest and resist the need for detail and narrative myth by denying the viewer symbolic references. The effect is blunt and aesthetically confrontational. It negates conventions about form and art-historical references while hinting to a system of order hovering just beyond perception. A system loaded with metaphoric content that captures the essence of place, time and emotion.
