STATEMENT

"My paintings are Abstract Expressionist and entirely conceptual. They are bold and passionate created with conviction in response to a specific emotion or state of being. Working medium to large in size I start by randomly applying heavy bodied- Gesso to the canvas to create a geometric design. I then use this design as a template for acrylic paint application. I rarely use colour directly from the tube and prefer instead to mix my own. I feel this lends intimacy to the work. Using large brushes and / or palette knives I allow some paint to drip while scraping out various areas to reveal the under painting. My goal is to say as much as possible without having a big discussion. I want people to see what uniquely speaks to them, depending on their own situation. People see different things in my work. Movement, Colour, and Passion are words I often hear people use when they speak about my work. I have been most influenced by the great Abstract Expressionists of post World War II America. Specifically, I feel my work most resembles what one would see if Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline and Hans Hofmann had collaborated to paint something together."
