"In my current work I am involved with various gestural forms along with a variety of abstract language. I am also using the elements and energy of the landscape in some of the paintings which seems to enter into the work in an intuitive way. I live on a farm in Northern California with various livestock and beautiful surroundings.
Breaking up the space differently in the current paintings than in previous works has created greater energy as well as interest for me with a new type of sensibility evolving with more emphasis on simpler more limited forms.
The negative space has become more important in the energy it conveys and its relation to other areas of the painting. In the last 4 years I have done a series called The White Paintings. In this body of works I am problem solving the opposition of the negative spaces to the areas of limited color while trying to achieve high energy in the paintings with emphasis on the quality of the surfaces."
