My paintings typically combine various media, such as encaustic, enamel, gouache and ink, with unconventional techniques and surfaces. Many works represent spontaneous unconscious expressions. They often are "accidents" that blend movement with chance, at times permitting color itself to be the subject. While some abstractions suggest a mood, most are unemotional. Finished works commonly are atonable transformations of earlier paint layers and textures that have been deliberately altered (cut/scraped/torn/bent/heated) in random fashion,thereby negating or diminishing prior formal relationships.
(Inspired by color of Chagall and Franz Marc, images of Dubuffet, and action of Pollock)
