Abstract Expressions

Bull Nose - Acrylic



Although I have been a representational and plein air painter for many years, in recent times I have developed a series of abstract paintings that makes a statement about color and shape or, rather, shapelessness.  My paintings are not intended to represent familiar objects, but to draw interest with color and the interplay of shapes within in a larger atmosphere that capture the imagination.  Keeping in mind the elements of design that make a good painting, I am most interested in finding ways to make a limited color palette the "voice" of the painting.  My inspiration comes from a variety of sources, some are concrete and some are from dreams.  As for process, I think my process is best described in the following quote by Marc Chagall:  "What I mean by 'abstract' is something which comes to life spontaneously through a gamut of contrasts, plastic at the same time as psychic, and pervades both the picture and the eye of the spectator with conceptions of new and unfamiliar elements."
