My studio practice sways between painting and sculpture. My paintings double as tryouts for sculptures while my sculptures illustrate and validate images developed in two-dimensions. Painting and sculpture give me the ability to place an array of structures in space concordantly; to meld light, color, and structure to reveal new and curious forms and present spontaneously wrought images, conceived through a process of free association, into a sense of space, place and possibility.
The conceptual underpinnings of my work are based on the pictorial space and structure found in Late Medieval Italian paintings. My work also continues to be informed by an ongoing study of history’s rich architectural heritage, which emphasizes the importance of aesthetic beacons in the built environment.
I believe a sense of space is the essence of all senses. My extended goal is to introduce a meaning-driven entity into a public arena.
