One of my principal concerns as a painter is to seek a coherent and meaningful whole from the random,chaotic profusion of natural forms often marginalized and overlooked in the larger context of a landscape.By concentrating on tree fragments, layers of dried leaves, or intertwining vines, I attempt to transcend the mundane literalness of the subjectmatter, and allow an opening into a new awareness and appreciation of the strange beauty of organic forms that stimulate the imagination and border on the fantastic. Through the visceral qualities of oil paint, distortions in color, and in the magnified scale of small objects made large, I try and create both a moody ambience suggestive of decay and regeneration, and an awareness of the inherently abstract nature of all living forms.
