About the artist
Over the past several years I have been  working in two related 
but different  styles that I refer to as  “color fields”  and  “color scapes”.   The color field  paintings are abstract paintings that  focus on color and color  harmonies.  These pieces are painted in loose grids  and concentric squares that are often  monochromatic with related colors gently introduced and  juxtaposed.  Some of these paintings  evoke horizons and landscapes while  others tend toward musical and life rhythms.  Creating these works is a meditative process while concentrating on the nuances of color and repetitive mark-making.

The color scape paintings share a  love of color but are an ongoing series of  imagined landscapes influenced by a  life near the sea, trips  to the countryside  and passages from books and novels. These pieces tend toward simple, child-like renderings of patchwork countrysides and seascapes with little  houses, rolling hills and dancing trees recalling more innocent times.

About the artist
My years of experience in traveling throughout the world guide my inspiration about the value of color, which changes every hour as every day. My perception of color is the value of the primary colors changing into varieties of colors as “Meditation Myth”.  I am drawn to follow the value of nature’s colors as they change from sunrise to sunset. This requires the employment of homemade paint from dust to create my vision of art.

About the artist
My work focuses on image appropriation and how varied source material can co-exist in a believable manner. Referenced as post- modern still life in genre, they often contain stories or commentaries beyond intrigue or beauty. Playing with notions of image “acceptability”, and shifting emotional reactions to the content, I give a respectful nod of appreciation to such genres as botanical illustration and still life.

I pay close attention to the characteristics of my materials, letting the notion of process and material contribute and construct the content of the work.

Most recently white backgrounds have given way to  intricate structures of colored grids which represent  the complex inter-link of technology in contemporary life. Employing the form of a bird as self portrait, I attempt to remove self-consciousness. The type of bird used as well as the personality they take on as I paint, expresses my moods and distinctions of mind. The titles refer to bird song.

About the artist
"I create organic, drawing-based abstractions. My pictures may seem familiar at first, but on closer inspection, they are not things that exist, but rather lyrical subjects whose dialogue originates out of line, color and light. I reference earth-based imagery constant throughout time and weave it into a visually complex space of memory and human experience.”

About the artist
A fascination with architecture has inspired me to create mixed media paintings for over thirty years. Utilizing my digitally manipulated photos, as collage, I piece portions of different architectural elements that are unrelated to each other and construct new, intriguing forms in my paintings. The compositions are constructed for a fusion of multiple perspectives. My application of oils mixed with cold wax medium on panels sometimes suggest fresco walls, concrete or steel. Linear detail with graphite, crayons, oil sticks and pencils provide a visual pathway throughout the composition and imply elements of an architectural drawing.

About the artist
My work is the equivalent of keeping a visual art diary. I create paintings that convey hope, and beauty through the interplay between color, line, and texture. I accomplish that by combining watercolor & acrylic paint with collage pieces & string, along with stamping techniques.

About the artist
My paintings are the result of over twenty years of daily work in my studio; of continuous thought about image, shape, color, meaning; and of the very paint I use as an extension of myself, a conduit between my stumbling human efforts and the pale flicker of my unconscious.
