My abstract work shows the relationship of our inner unconscious or dream state to the outer or physical world;more specifically the relationship of the unrealized to the realized .Two realities that exist simultaneously .
My focus when painting is always on the form and setting color variations against one another to create something exciting to the eye.
Working now on figurative pieces with the emphasis on the 1940′s and the climate of the time. I call this new work “The Promise of Tomorrow”.
My influences have been the abstract expressionists, the impressionists and some of the Flemish, especially Breugel and Vermeer. However,I could not have lived in this century and not have been influenced by the contributions of Pablo Picasso.
