My projects begin with a variably triggered, non-objective visual idea for which I feel a compulsive creative energy to translate into a physical object. My work usually demands the mustering of a great deal of my intellectual concentration to accomplish this task. Determining the juxtaposition of forms, either organic or geometric, in my compositions is like putting together a puzzle. My creative process moves through an evolution of color, form, and texture, in which I perceive each element craving a compositional pose. Finding a workable order in which to assemble and balance the pieces to make them "comfortable" or "comfortably uncomfortable" with each other is the challenge. Currently in the execution of my creative process, I am incorporating tactile surface elements in compositions using a variety of textural materials (i.e. canvas, modeling compounds, screening materials, cloth, etc.) that seem to induce a desire in my viewers to physically touch. Changing emphasis on the elements in my projects allows me a path for exploration as well as freedom from a formulaic personal style.
Once a piece has assumed its order, I am able to disassociate from the piece and regain my control and freedom to begin something new. There is nothing intentionally recognizable or unrecognizable in most of my work. In analyzing my process and product, I believe I am making a personal effort to not comment about things, places, or events in the frenetic world surrounding all of us. This does not mean I never uncover a "note to self" in my work. Rather I hope to create an interesting respite from a ubiquitous cacophony. I invite viewers to engage in a simple sensing experience without a requirement to quantify, justify, or categorize.
(On occasion I delve into an "expressionistic and lightly representational" painting format...a relief from the intensity of the above recitation!)
