Artists Statement

I concentrate on the precision of color and the intrigue of color relationships. These paintings consist of horizontal bands of color. While a strong color configuration is clearly visible, these paintings reveal themselves gradually, and with changes of light and position.

The medium is acrylic on BFK Rives paper, collaged onto hardboard. There is a three-dimensionality to both the assembled edges between the color bands and the edge of the entire piece. Each work stands away from the wall an inch, allowing for a colored shadow to project onto the wall. Some works are derived from observations in nature, while others are based purely on color combinations. Some works may trigger color memories, while others constitute new experiences.
