My paintings reflect the beauty of the New England landscapes, with its old and new barns, towns, rolling hills, ocean beaches and shores, brooks and waterfalls, flowers and people. The practice of daily painting encourages the viewers to find an equivalent in their own memory. The result is a body of work that celebrates the vibrancy of life and art.
Starting with a planned and controlled approach to each painting, I surrender to the spontaneity of the creative process, taking the liberty to edit the reality and loosen up the brushstroke. Thus, the realism of the work becomes open to abstraction. The effect of light is explored both by building up the paint, modulating the color and texture, and by removing it, in a gestural technique reminiscent of graffiti. The paintings give form to our inner journeys to formless and beyond.
In this entangled forest
you are the hidden treasure –
the owner of infinity.
