What does my Art mean?
I used to reference old barns, cactus and old buildings that represented memories from my childhood visits to rural Kansas and Nebraska.
In my journey back to abstraction, I
called upon memories of New Mexico landscapes. Whether real or imagined, there is a secure and peaceful feeling when I see in my mind or create an image of these memories. When I paint, my goal is to create a visual dialogue between my art and viewers.
I use mark making to explore the visual language of abstraction. Scraping, covering, lifting and building layers with paint, graphite and some collage.
For me, abstract art is an elusive relationship of challenges and rewards. My intent is that the paintings convey these challenges and rewards.
My hope is that the viewer joins the visual conversation and connects with the joy.
