My abstract imagery comes from everywhere. As I draw and paint, I interpret situations I've experienced, objects, or places I've seen, or moods and feelings. As I work, I utilize the ideas of the abstract expressionists artists who opened the door so contemporary artists can interpret ideas, subjects, and emotions. I am receptive to what happens on the picture plane, deliberately, and accidentally. I think of my paintings as MINDSCAPES, where the images I create are solely from my imagination.
The last few years have been filled with political and environmental turmoil, and every person on the planet has been threatened with the Covid virus. I needed to express the trepidation all humanity is feeling. The paintings submitted in this exhibit address the unease felt by storms, nightmares, and dreams. By using visual dynamics such as curved overlapping shapes, pure contrasting colors, and strong directional lines I created explosive forms and captured the energy of the unexpected. The pull and push on the surface is created on canvas with acrylic paint, washes of thin paint that then build to heavier areas of layered paint.
