This year I've been developing a series of recycled globes which I'm thrilled to preview.------
I'll also be showing several of my paintings with silver and copper leaf.-----
The power of color has been a life long passion. I am influenced and inspired by the surrealist, minimalist and colorfield painters, among others. Some of these qualities and questions they brought up tend to appear in my own new body of explorative works. My intent is to develop an abstract visual vocabulary with images using an innate sense of relationships which take the viewer to both somewhere new and somewhere in the subconscious at the same time.-----
The addition copper and silver leaf recently added to my paintings adds a fluid element as light changes from different vantage points. Those tonal changes then play with varying qualities of the rich under-painting.
