Through the juxtaposition of color, mark making, realistic
imagery, and abstract space, this series uses the painting
process as a vehicle to derive meaning. These paintings are
aesthetically analogous to collage, although all representational
images were rendered from life. The image making process for
these works progressed in a non-linear manner and most
began without preplanning. A found object, a group of marks, or
a color field could all be of an equal impetus for evolving the
painting. The outcomes from this process were always
idiosyncratic, yet the formal relationships within the paintings
speak to something more universal.
