Abstraction hints at memory, tugs at the heart & dances around the edge of story.
The stories we tell define how we see ourselves & how we see others.
My contemporary paintings provide a safe place, a sacred space, for stories: individual & corporate, to unfold.
A moment is captured in pigment & suspended in time & space. Each painting is an archaeological exploration of a journey. Some layers, like some stories, are obscured with the passage of time. Other layers hold strong to the end.
Each layer influences, but no single layer determines, the final result.
Can art make a difference? Can a painting embody hope?
Yes, in my experience, it can.
Each painting is a declaration of hope.
A declaration that beauty is possible.
