Artist’s Statement
“In my work, I attempt to express something more than the physical aspects of the subject. It is not my intent to portray accurately what I see, but rather to allow what I see to show itself to me. My part is to freely and joyously paint and let the results take care of themselves. I feel that a successful painting just happens and the end result cannot be anticipated and is therefore very surprising to the painter. The more a painter can “not paint” so to speak, the more space becomes available for this communication to happen. It is a kind of effortless available for this communication to happen. It is a kind of effortless accomplishment whose success is not measured by the work itself, but rather in what is stirred or evoked in the viewer. Possibly, the real fruit of painting or art, is that it has the power to awaken the sleeping artist within each of us, creating new possibilities for seeing and enlarging our capacity to appreciate the beauty which surrounds us.”
