My paintings reflect a world view that recognizes the human desire to arrange, distill, and make sense of an infinitely complex and interrelated universe. What can be perceived is only an incomplete generalization of a vast network of information. Seeking the essence of things in this often overwhelming age of information, we assemble emerging bits and hints of pattern. As an artist of non-objective and abstracted form I see my process of art-making as a way to allow a visual vocabulary express, with color and composition in the material world, ideas for which words are inadequate. I find inspiration in the visual occurrences of everyday life where color, line, and form find just the right intersection to create a moment of satisfyingly raw beauty. It is those moments that offer the possibility of communion, not just communication, and are the elusive goal of the artist.
