I see my work as abstract interpretations of subject matter that is usually quite specific. In a broad sense, I am interested in the connection between things which are opposed, what they have in common, and what kind of visual statement they make when combined. Some of my paintings and drawings incorporate mark-making, mostly obscured or unreadable text, and/or an element of architectural shape. Simultaneously, I continue to have a fascination with nearly empty, contemplative canvasses (a type of landscape referential minimalism) where color and texture are key. Presently my interest is divided between these two types of work and my challenge is to resolve this dichotomy. For more information please see my website
