Artist's Statement
" "
My paintings originated with the idea of how the complexity of living hinders making good decisions. Decisions we make are bedeviled by insufficient, erroneous and irrelevant information and our actions fraught with pitfalls. Much is beyond our control. Others have agendas in conflict with our own. My paintings’ imagery – multivarious, imaginative structures resembling houses, churches and other buildings set in a psychic space – served this idea well as it is people who create and inhabit these structures who must navigate the complexities of their daily decisions. The structures became the alphabet of an idiosyncratic language with different paintings reflecting various dimensions of the basic idea. Inept decisions made “on the fly” underlie the “flying” series where structures break apart. Life as a journey led to the “skyship” paintings where structures travel through a psychic space. The journey idea also informs the “map” paintings. The transience of flowers and life inspired the “bouquet” paintings. The latest evolution in my painting involves the “reclaim” paintings in which the structures comment on my own more realistic paintings thereby melding the abstract with the realistic. My palette varies from the very limited to a broader chromatic scale. My limited palette is similar to that of Renaissance Dutch painters. The broader palette employs a more colorful range.
