Painting is a way of engaging the world, a way of looking, seeing and ordering. The geometry of architectural and natural forms provides a structure against which to manipulate paint. The subject matter offers a human scale and context for the abstract dynamics of line, color, and texture. The aim is to carry the energy of the process of engagement through to the surface of the image, illuminating its presence. The real content of the work is this process of engagement, a struggle of order and chaos.
