Ready to Hang
This piece is from a series of abstract landscape palette knife paintings I have done. It is composed of rich color blocks, and delicate color plays. Richly textured with abundant depth, this piece is fresh and serene. All materials are archival and it is on deep gallery wrapped canvas, the sides of which have been painted making framing optional rather than necessary. It is varnished, wired and ready to hang.
Bio My mental association with something: a place, the angle of the sun in a memory, stories when there is nothing else left of their subjects, is my departure point when creating my work. I learn much about my association with the context during the process and I get a sense of resolution in this. I receive immense gratification knowing that I have animated what is lifeless into a boisterous celebration of energy and life or a hauntingly elegant study in subtlety. Dimensionally rich in layers and textures, and held together by articulate color plays, I create pieces that beg intimate investigation, and reward again and again upon repeated visitations. My work has been published in a book featuring international artists. I hold a BA in fine arts, am internationally collected, as well as in many many private collections in the United States.
