About

I am a 21-Century modernist. My art (paintings and sculptures) are abstract narratives on beauty and dynamic orders that shift, change, or mutate. Geometry, structure, and relationship are my chosen language; compositional movement my vocabulary. My spoken dialect is line; abstraction is my constant. Color talks. My stylistic approach to art is inherently 21st Century ultra-modern, engineered, hard-edged, distilled into abstraction, and Neo-Concrete. My work also draws from a continuum, a thread of universal communication and statement winding through ancestral cultures to future, technological societies. In that, my work is much about the common denominators: the language of geometry (and color) AND about that which is universally shared: expression, truth, and mystery. I seek, in my work, to strip away the extraneous details which conceal (through use of abstraction), and to reveal the undercurrent of statement. Regarding sculpture: sculpture creation for me is a matter of building dimensional and shape relationships into a complexity, one on top of the other until a smooth integration is achieved. Although my art expression might be initially perceived as straightforward, structural, reductive, and abstract, there is more." What you (initially) see is (not) what you get." I weave extended message into an orchestrated and flowing, visual dance in space like an adagio. I want your participation. Explore the work and my statement will unfold.
