From Visionary Show, May 2 to June 2, 2019: My work lives somewhere between painting and sculpture. I am moved to employ elements of illusion with color onto my three dimensional forms. I have created figures emerging from walls or planes that have the same two dimensional to three dimensional quality. I feel this method gives my work a recognizable style, my mannerism. I intuitively apply color and markings onto my pieces, until the piece is visually right. This method allows me to wrestle with the piece, sometimes frustration and other times a sense of harmony. This series of works were also influenced by my travels through Paris France and Italy.
