Artist  Statement;
"My non-objective abstract work depicts the colors, textures and motion occurring in the natural world.  Surface and textural variations, spherical and organic forms represent my interest in the universal paradox:  change over time, and seemingly simultaneous permanence.  Light seems to pass through structures, with planes intersecting and shifting, to create a kinetic effect.   Dramatic contrast I consider to be an important component in all my work.  Light spaces invite the viewer to pass into the painting, to 'see' new forms and shapes in an attempt to discard habitual or conditioned ways of seeing the world. 

My most recent series of oils on linen,  Color Music reflect the bold and subtle  colors and forms in nature as depicted in an ever-moving  flow of color and light--a continuation of the Earthflow paintings.    Inspired by the tones, harmonies and rhythms of  classical music scores though never representative of the composer's  musical ideas as such,   I paint the "colors" I hear in the music.    My ongoing interest in the microcosm of  life is seen in the molecular-like  ("moleculii") shapes  painted into macro cosmic space.
