I am concerned with communicating a sense of harmony, balance, order and spirituality.
We are all confronted on a daily basis with the fragmentation of our non-linear lives, trying, as in a puzzle, to make the pieces fit together to make sense of it all.
My paintings, works on paper, and sculpture depict imagery of personal events and psychological issues. They are expressed through geometric shapes, color, light, space, texture, edges and movement each interplaying with one another engaging the viewer to participate.
Most recently, I have embarked on a series of white paintings that abandon my signature bold palette. These paintings, from the "Elements of Peace" series, pay homage to people who have been affected by war. White is soft, quiet, spiritual, unadorned and full of infinite possibilities. My intention is to create an architectural space for rest, retreat, connection, reflection and identification.
The multi-dimensionality and multi-layering of my work reference what one must uncover to penetrate the illusions of reality and reach the mystery and essence of the soul.
