“Sometimes I choose to make large black & white images which reference or resemble some specific thing— an object or person. Sometimes I choose to make small color paintings which refer to nothing specific but may allude to many things. The paintings on display here are from an ongoing series I began four years ago as an exercise to find themes and unlimited variations within limiting restrictions:
1. Abstract, reductive, non-representational.
2. Square format, 5 to 8 inches.
3. Medium – gouache (opaque watercolor) on paper.
What I hope for in a painting is a dynamic balance of visual elements that invites and rewards slow looking.”
