Statement of Current Work


The verticality of this series comes out of the process of conveying information more than presenting a closed, finished scene. Struck by the differences of now compared to an earlier time, the rushing flow of information and the questioning of sources, content, reach and responses. And then what remains and holds for me. What actions are most important at this time, on this day. And what is crucial for me to say, visually.

The compulsion to engage with the pull of a brushstroke or diffuse the evidence of the artist's hand. The contrasts that are all surrounding, the beauty of our place in the Pacific Northwest, the multitude of inequities, the desire to help others, the desire to protect oneself. Where should boundaries be placed; which boundaries can float away. Exploring these ideas in narrow verticals, employing the mutability of oil paint, is currently where I am engaging as an artist.
